The Department of History, Politics, and International Relations at Webster University offers students a strong liberal arts education and excellent career preparation.
Students learn to translate information into understanding and perspective, and to apply that knowledge in today's world. The more complete "world view" students have, the better prepared they are to meet the challenges of the future. In addition, students in this department develop invaluable skills such as reading, writing, public speaking, and critical thinking.
