The Department of History and Political Science at Notre Dame de Namur University offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in History. 

The history major helps students comprehend the political, economic, social, religious, intellectual and artistic experiences of peoples all over the world and develop personal skills of research, organization, writing, and analysis. We challenge our students to understand how decisions made in the past continue to shape society and political discourse, and to appreciate their own agency in shaping a better world.
