Introduction

The Department of Political Science provides majors with a strong foundation to expand awareness and understanding of political life, stimulates scholarship and continuing interest in government, government service, and civics—and provides a framework for enriching the exposure of majors and the wider university community to the study of government, politics, and issues of public concern. Students also may explore themes of war and peace and the effects of globalization, the role of international law and organizations, and America's leadership in the world.

The Department offers a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Minor in Political Science. It also hosts an Interdisciplinary option that can substitute for a Minor: a Concentration in Pre-Law.

The Department's programs are specially designed to develop analytical skills, combining organized knowledge with practical experience that introduces and prepares students for career opportunities in the public as well as non-governmental sectors. Internships are a vital part of the programs. Many occupations today require a college-educated individual who can write and speak well, solve problems, learn new information quickly, and work well with others on a team. Political Science students prepare for professional training in public policy, public administration, law, graduate education in the policy sciences, as well as employment in government and non-government public sector organizations, including non-profit organizations or businesses relating to international affairs.
