This is an exciting time in the life of LeTourneau University with growth and expansion taking place all across campus. Here in the History and Political Science Department, growth is also occurring, with new programs and courses. Our students are preparing for careers in such fields as academia, law, international relations and public policy, and it’s truly a blessing to be a part to that process.
The faculty of LeTourneau University’s History and Political Science department are dedicated to our students. We are committed to the task of challenging and equipping our students intellectually, as well as preparing them to be productive citizens who can confidently and competently pursue their chosen vocation and answer Christ’s call of service in their lives. We work closely with our students, promoting academic rigor in our courses and encouraging them in the acquisition of a broad body of historical and political knowledge and in the development of excellent communication, research, and analytical skills.
Our program is not simply about the classroom. To prepare for life after college, we encourage students to do internships. Over the years, our students have served as interns in area museums, at national parks, in federal, state, and local government agencies, and in the offices of lawyers, judges and United States senators. Through our affiliation with the Consortium of Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU), our students have the opportunity to spend “study abroad” semesters at Oxford University in the United Kingdom, at the Middle Eastern Studies Program in Egypt and at the Latin American Studies Program in Costa Rica. We believe breadth, as well as depth, to be intrinsically valuable in education and a necessary ingredient for service in an ever-changing world.
As I mentioned, it’s a blessing to be a part of this vibrant academic community and to see the many wonderful things our students do when they go out into “every workplace and every nation.” Take some to time to tour our site, and if you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to contact me.
