One of the most popular majors at The Citadel has a new leader.
The college has named a new Head of the Department of Political Science, Dr. DuBose Kapeluck. Kapeluck, a scholar, author, researcher and educator, has been a professor at The Citadel since 2002. The department is comprised of 12 full time faculty members as well as the Governor John C. West Chair, Mallory Factor, and The Citadel Fellow, Don Fowler, former National Chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
“A Fulbright scholar, a respected author, and popular teacher, DuBose Kapeluck brings a full-range of strengths to the position of Head of the Department of Political Science,” said Bo Moore, Dean of Humanities & Sciences. “Under his leadership, a strong department promises to become stronger still.”
Kapeluck will lead cadets, students and graduate students in the discipline of political science in a quest to develop principled leaders who will be in demand after earning their degrees. More than 500 cadets have graduated with degrees in political science over the last decade.
“Our graduates build careers in law and government. Whether they work as a diplomat with the Foreign Service, are recruited to join an intelligence agency or transition as officers into military service, a foundation in the discipline of political science from The Citadel enables them to be critical thinkers who are highly desired as members of government, civic agencies and organizations,” Kapeluck said.
