History, Politics, & International Relations

The History, Politics, & International Relations Department offers a diverse curriculum that combines tradition and innovation. Our faculty are committed to the concept of a liberal arts education. Our aim is to help students become fearless and perceptive readers, vivid and effective writers, and well-informed citizens of the world. At the same time, we know that students learn in different ways and have different goals and aspirations. Our programs allow students the flexibility they need to excel in their studies and pursue their personal career aims. Most of our majors study abroad – including many who never dreamed of leaving the United States when they came to Webster. Others have taken advantage of our rich opportunities for practicums and internships right here in the Midwest.

History, Politics, & International Relations Department faculty include top scholars in their field. (Three faculty members have written textbooks that are used by colleges nationwide!) Five have won Webster University’s top teaching prize. And all faculty believe that an education in history, international relations, or political science is the best preparation for a complex, ever-changing, and increasingly international job market. Our programs provide skills that have no expiration date. Whichever major you choose, you are laying a foundation for life-long learning.
