Consistent with the mission of the Texas Woman’s University to emphasize liberal arts and professional education, the mission of the Department of History and Government is to develop an understanding and appreciation of the disciplines of history and political science, their interdisciplinary connections to each other, and to other fields of inquiry.  As the study of history, politics, law and government is inevitably multicultural, programs provide opportunities to learn about diversity of experiences, including a global range of cultural issues that address the intersecting roles of race, class, ethnicity, religion, and gender.  Courses in our programs seek to develop in our students the skills needed for critical, analytical thinking, evidence based research, oral and written presentation, and public leadership.  Ultimately, courses in our programs prepare our graduates for active citizenship and to succeed in further graduate and professional education and in the careers of their choice.
