Dr. Cale Horne Joins History & Politics Faculty

Dr. Cale Horne Dr. Cale Horne has joined Covenant's faculty as an assistant professor of political studies. A Covenant alumnus with a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Georgia, Dr. Horne will helm Covenant's new political studies concentration and minor within the History & Politics Department.

 

"Too often, undergraduate curricula in political studies amount to little more than a degree in current events," says Dr. Horne. "This is a disservice to students in the extreme. Politics is complicated stuff and requires rigorous theoretical, methodological and substantive training if we're to make any sense of it."

 

Dr. Horne continues: "I still think Abraham Kuyper says it best: ‘...there is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is sovereign over all, does not cry: "Mine!"' With this truth in mind, it's my hope that the political studies program at Covenant College will prepare students to faithfully serve Christ and His Church in government, law, international affairs, academia and elsewhere."

 

In the fall 2011 semester, Dr. Horne will teach Introduction to Political Studies, Comparative Politics, American Government, and Public Opinion.

Raeanne Curtis '17, Gabby Powell '17 & Chase Waller '18 describe a project they participated in for a class on the Civil War era taught by Dr. Alicia Jackson.

"I enjoy Dr. Green’s Intro to History class because he presents history differently than my high school teachers did. During the first few classes we discussed what history is. Some people believe that history is what happened in the past or just a compilation of facts; but we defined history as the act of selecting, analyzing, and writing about the past. Dr. Green made me want to stay a history major."
