Top 10 Reasons You Should Study History and Government at Cedarville University

Integration of Scripture

We believe balancing Scripture throughout your course work is key to a strong program. Not only will you be encouraged to be salt and light, but to influence your culture for Christ. In addition, you will take a close look at what it means to have a moral government.

Life-Changing Opportunities

In an effort to enhance your undergraduate experience, Cedarville has introduced the D.C. Semester. Besides attending classes two days a week, you would intern at a participating agency anywhere from Capitol Hill to interest groups and government agencies.

Practical Experience

As a Cedarville history or government student, you will be able to intern under the direct supervision of a qualified professional. And the department recently initiated the History and Government Organization as a means of providing further opportunities for you and your professors to pursue like-minded interests.
