"What I like about the History/Political Science major is that you really get to know your professors. They are very open and will help you if you have any questions. They will also help make sure you understand the material that you are learning. I also like the program because they connect what you are learning to world events today. They make connects to today and show you how the past really does seem to repeat itself."
