Dr. William Collins, Professor of Political Science, Howard College of Arts and Sciences
Dr. Collins took his Ph.D in political science from Florida State University. He served in the U.S. Navy during the Indo China War (1966-1969). This experience led him to teach and research in political philosophy, jurisprudence, and mathematical modeling. His recent interests have been the transition to the modern period and the work of Aquinas and Ockham. He also studies the dynamics of collective life, in particular the intersection of religion and culture. Away from the job he plays chess, listens to Bach and Mozart, and reads about the history of mathematics and science.
