Political Science Department
If you’re interested in government, public policy and international relations, a political science major is a great choice. The study of politics not only provides awareness and understanding of national and international political processes, it motivates students to become active, competent citizens and employees. In our preparatory programs for careers in political science, law, public relations and education, students are nurtured as talented and ethical leaders and educators.
You’ll learn how groups govern themselves, how policies are made, changed and improved. You’ll take classes to acquire skills in communication, analysis, independent thinking and problem definition and solving. You’ll not only study actual cases of political and administrative tensions, you’ll help resolve them locally, regionally and statewide. You can meet and observe judges and lawyers in action or work on political campaigns.
Many of our graduates have gone on to serve as congressional aides, journalists, elected officials, state and federal agency representatives, city managers and more. Many continue on to law school or further education to become professors, hospital administrators and researchers.
