Department of Historical, Legal, and Leadership Studies
It’s possible to take a course in U.S. history at a secular university and never learn how religious faith played a key role in the country’s laws, government, and values. Southeastern’s Department of Historical, Legal, and Leadership Studies shows students how to study history, public policy, criminal justice, and leadership from a Christian perspective, and how to promote Biblical values through these fields. Graduates of our history program can pursue careers in history and other fields that value critical thinkers. Our public policy majors learn how to develop and implement public policies that reflect Christian values. Students who major in criminal justice are equipped for careers in law enforcement, as well as future study in law school. And our leadership grads are trained to lead in companies, churches, and other organizations, by serving in the spirit of Christ. The Department of Historical, Legal, and Leadership Studies —through its Pre-Law Track—also educates students in the fundamentals of law and prepares them for the rigors of law school.
