Historical Note

Classes in politics were first taught as political economy classes at Michigan State University starting in 1858. In 1875 the department of Political Economy was created. In 1883 it merged with the history department to become the Department of History and Political Economy. In 1899 the department of Economics and Political Science was created. In 1908 the department changed to History and Economics with the political science classes being taught in that department. In 1916 the name changed to History and Political Science. In 1949 the Political Science and Public Administration Department was created within the School of Business and Public Service. In 1962 the Political Science Department became administered by the College of Social Science.
