So to be clear from the outset, I am not advocating that quantitative political science should attempt to emulate the professional approach or methods that many historians employ. Whereas each one of us is involved in politics, either, directly or indirectly, Political Science is studied only by the students of this social discipline. Article shared by The relationship between Political Science and History is very close and intimate. .
Theory and methods in political science. Humanities vs Social Sciences Humanities and social sciences deal with human aspects like politics, law, linguistics, economics, and psychology. In a wilderness of common sense, science stands a lonely pinnacle One of the strongest features of science is that it can correct our seriously flawed cognition and give us an unfiltered view of reality. Are we missing one or were there only six? I don't know how it is in American colleges, but if you say decide to major in Political Sciences, then you should be able to take classes from History anyway. Comparative politics courses are of two basic types.
There are overlaps still between history and political science, but they have different goals. Theory seeks propositions that place parameters upon variant currents of political life and thought, so as to advance a normative set of explanations of how political life will or may unfold. Or is science different from religion? And so it seems Political Science may be a good alternative. A theory, which cannot be disproved with no possible fact nor action, is non-scientific, in other words, an area of knowledge. As a result, scholars are analyzing world trade, communications, development, foreign investment, and international finance. If I had to do it over again, I would have picked up a tech degree.
Shortly, politics affects economics and economics is a large part of politics. Manual work is not for everyone but you will never be without a good paying job. Stick with History if that's what your gut tells you. Those are the ingredients, not the finished product. For perspective, I have degrees in Poli Sci, Economics, Latin, physics, and law and I'm going back for my electrical engineering masters after I finish spring semester. So this is my first post back from a prolonged break. There are very few jobs out there for history majors, and the degree doesn't certify you to do anything.
I think these sorts of reactions expose some problems and some important assumptions that we often make as political scientists. Modern Political Scientists do not make a distinction between the two. To destroy their laws dignity therefore brings about a lack of respect for the law and leads to lawlessness. Humanities are considered to be more philosophical than social sciences. It serves as a best kind of laboratory to Political Science.
Therefore, there is no unitary political theory that explains governance, just as there is no such thing as two identical governments. It is an illusion to expect political theory to generate principles with the degree of certainty that the natural science generates the laws of physics, for example. In contrast, cultural anthropologist often immerse themselves in another society for a long period of time, trying to learn as much as possible about the society and the relationships among its people. Finally, Berlin's profound grasp of history and human nature were the tools he found essential to convincingly envision the possibility of tolerant and humane societies in which core objective moral values could be recognized and serve to guide action, while at the same time never forgetting that moral conflict between individuals, between individual societies, and even value conflict within the mind of each individual is inevitable and unavoidable. It has been put by sir,John Seeley in this couplet.
If a move is not explicable by the commoner then it is termed a political move.

Your degree doesn't define you, your ability to be a well-rounded person does. And I love History too but it was a very good American Government prof as well as courses in International Relations and Comparative Politics that made me choose Poli Sci. They a … lso develop new theories that would provide or predict psychological explanations of political phenomena.
They won't guarantee you a job, and if that's your main concern, neither one will really be the major for you. In my opinion this cannot be said of the other degrees, or any other for that matter. Similarly, interaction terms with a variable capturing a particular time period, for example, are implicitly suggesting that a given relationship is time-bound in some way. By analysing the same scenarios, the two groups reach opposing conclusions: realists believe that human beings are selfish and egoistic and that countries live in a perpetual state of war and conflict. Naming these periods according to centuries and decades is quite common, although many periods are named retrospectively as well. I don't see anything wrong with majoring in History or any basic humanities discipline like Lit, Language, performance, etc PolSci is a different matter.
But a History degree teaches you how to write and research and be a generally smart person, which, unfortunately, is not something that employers are looking for. A politician is basically a sociologist and uses sociological concepts. Now the question arises how all this happened in England. There was a great shift, however, to the study of humanities in the 15th century. Both subjects have taught me to be analytical and to criticize the position of others. If you are still having difficulties choosing try not to worry, the first few years of both programs tend to be similar so you can always change your major later if you feel you made the wrong choice.
