The Political Science program is designed to give majors and minors a strong background in American government and politics, international relations, comparative politics, and political philosophy. A degree in Political Science makes it possible to find employment in a variety of areas ranging from business to government. Along with the economic value of this degree, there is the added benefit in developing a sophisticated understanding of the foundations of government and politics which are necessary for a citizen living in an open society.
Because we offer a wide variety of courses, as a student of Political Science you will be studying in a diversity of areas and working on a number of guided research projects. There are a variety of internships with state and federal governments available for qualified students.
