Globalism & Localism

globallocal.jpgGlobalism and localism is the combined focus of Catawba College's Department of History & Politics.

This emphasis on making students see connections to their world has become a central focus of the merged programs in history and political science. Both areas draw on the strengths of the other, and are fundamental for students to gain a better understanding of the world they live in.

Our students gain practical, hands-on experience at the local level, but also realize through both coursework and that local experience the need to understand global issues and perspectives.

In addition, the department has a focus on the history and politics of the United States. With the combination of global and American history and politics, the department is dedicated to preparing its graduates for useful and productive careers and lives in the 21st century.
