Political Science

The political science major provides academic challenge, real world knowledge, and a host of exciting opportunities. The department offers courses that cover a broad array of topics including American and global politics, law, public policy, political thought and international relations. We challenge and encourage our students--you'll learn a great deal about the world and about yourself. No major will graduate without learning the analytic skills that will prepare you to be an active and effective citizen and to succeed in the professional world.
