Department of Political Science

We prepare students for career success, leadership and social responsibility through the study of the fundamental values, interests, processes, tools and actors that play a role in making decisions.

About our program

Politics is essential to the human condition. It is expressed in patterns of influence among individuals, in the actions of states in world affairs, and in collective efforts to achieve our most noble goals. The political science curriculum links moral issues to empirical analysis of political life and explores the realities of political behavior at local, state, national, and international levels. A political science major helps students prepare for careers in government, social and political organizations, international relations, business, and education, and for graduate study or law school.
