The undergraduate program in History at Northeastern University challenges students to think critically about the past, inspires them to examine their perspectives on the present, and encourages them to intelligently shape the future. The History major develops skills in research, reasoning, writing and presenting which can prepare students for careers in advertising, journalism, publishing and teaching. History majors also go on to graduate school in history, museum science, education, law school and business school. Many work in international fields.
The Political Science Department offers a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degree that covers all the major fields in the discipline, including American politics, comparative politics, international relations, political theory, and public policy and public administration.
Students who major in International Affairs focus on topics that are both historical and current in order to gain perspective on the forces that shape the events around us. Students will complete six required courses and six elective courses to be selected from courses in the International Affairs program’s categories of Regional Analysis and Global Dynamics.
