History & Political Science

Welcome to Bethany College’s History-Political Science Department! We think our students are among the finest you’ll find at any college or university in the nation. Academically, they are high achievers, but they also distinguish themselves in a wide variety of musical, artistic, and athletic endeavors.

We are particularly proud of their record as campus leaders. Our majors have been officers in student government, sororities, fraternities, and their respective classes. They have been editors and staff members for the Bethany Messenger, the College’s newspaper, and have served in positions of responsibility in residence halls.
