Division of History & Political Science
The Division of History and Political Science emphasizes the understanding of the past and politics through a Christian context, relating their relevance to our present and future within the complex world of today.
The Division of History and Political Science teaches the outcomes of ethical and values choices and examines the role Christianity has played to enrich us individually and as a society.
Covering a wide range of disciplines, the faculty work closely with students to provide an inspring environment conducive to learning. Within that environment the faculty work with students to receive practical experience in those disciplines, such as library and archives, legal services and government administration. Students who are interested in going to law school should major in pre-law, history or public administration. The 2012-13 average LSAT score of enrolled students at Louisiana College is 155.
In addition to classroom instruction, various internship and seminar opportunities serve to encourage students and strengthen the skills already set in place by the program.
The Division of History and Political Science will provide students with knowledge and understanding of all aspects of human endeavor from a Christian perspective. The Division concentrates on the history and foundations of all human civilization as well as the history and government of the United States in the past and at present. All classes will expect high achievement by faculty and student. Students are encouraged to be good citizens, leaders in all they do, and servants of Christ to understand and change the world by the power of the Holy Spirit.
