The combined major in History and Political Science supplements the study of the decisions that have shaped all the cultures of the world with the study of systems, institutions, popular movements, and leaders that cause social change. Allowing you to specialize in two related fields, combined majors draw on the knowledge and opportunities afforded by two academic departments and fields of study. You will gain access to hands-on participation in research in both departments, and small class sizes allow for direct contact with both departments’ faculty. In addition, the city of Indianapolis boasts a variety of local museums, political institutions, service organizations, and more, providing access to internships, service learning, and research opportunities.
