Meet our faculty
The size of the faculty in Messiah College’s Department of Politics and International Relations make it an ideal environment for cultivating personal relationships that extend beyond the classroom. Professors meet you where you are to mentor you and help develop your existing strengths and grow your skills to become a successful student. Each faculty member has their doctoral degree and will share the breadth of expertise you might find at a larger university.
The quality of teaching and mentoring in Messiah's politics department was as good or better than anything I experienced at Oxford or Harvard. But a Messiah College education doesn't stop with a textbook — students are encouraged to think about how the Christian faith should shape our understanding of the subjects we studied. As a result, the education I received at Messiah has become more and more valuable to me as time passes.Kevin Hicks '93 General Counsel, Vice President SafeNet, Inc.
