Dr. Cale Horne in the classroom

In the fall of 2019, a Political Science major will be available for incoming and residing students of Covenant College. This major will specifically fill a gap in providing necessary requisites for pre-law students. In addition to the new major, the current Political Studies minor which is housed in the History department will be redefined and placed under the Political Science major.

“Singing in the Stairwell in Andreas with everyone is probably the coolest experience I’ve had; I do it almost every Sunday and it just never gets old. Shouting 'Were You There' at the top of my lungs, rejoicing with everyone, and shaking the walls with praise is such an amazing feeling.”
