The Political Science Department provides outstanding instruction on the study of government institutions, public processes, politics and political behavior. Courses are taught by dedicated faculty members—all of whom hold Ph.D.s—and who have unique, diverse backgrounds that offer a blend of policy, law, judicial and international affairs experience.
Students are highly engaged in both lively classroom discussions and through forums outside of the classroom, such as the Model U.N., Pi Sigma Alpha (the National Political Science Honor Society), the Public Affairs Institute and the Student Academic Conference. Students learn to embrace diplomatic approaches, versatility in political thought and global perspectives through a variety of learning experiences. The Legal Studies Program and the International Studies Program are outstanding complements to the Political Science degree. Students graduate from the program with a deep understanding of government systems and public policy, and are well positioned to enter a variety of career fields, including government, business, education and journalism.
