The Department of History and Political Science at Arkansas Tech wants to see you succeed in your college career.

We take a different view on the importance of students from other universities -- we aren't only concerned with getting you to come to Arkansas Tech after high school, we also want to assist you in getting the most from college life while you are here.

The Department provides many services to you. We have several organizations which are geared toward giving students more of an opportunity for detailed study and involvement in campus life. And if you're interested in other departments or organizations on campus but don't know where to turn, visit us in Witherspoon Hall and we'll point you in the right direction.
Now Available: Three Year (Tentative) Course Schedule

The Department of History and Political Science (previously named the Department of Social Sciences and Philosophy) has a Nationally Recognized Social Studies Teacher Education Program, as awarded by the National Council for the Social Studies.

The Arkansas Digital History Institute was founded to collect and make available to the public digital copies of Arkansas's most significant historical artifacts.  Donations come from everyday Arkansans who have documents,  photographs, sound recordings, and video recordings in their possession that they wish to contribute to the historical record and preserve for future generations.  Visit the site at
