History & Political Science Faculty


  • A Student-centered Approach

    We have a dedicated faculty with years of teaching, mentoring and advising experience and a strong record of scholarship. The number one mission of our faculty is to provide our students with the best possible learning experiences to prepare them for enriching lives and successful careers. We define success by the achievements of our students both during their college years and beyond. At Saint Francis, you will be taught, mentored and advised by full-time History and Political Science Ph.D. faculty, from summer orientation through graduation. Put simply, students come first around here.
