Our Political Science majors learn to exercise political responsibility in its various dimensions—local, state, national, and international—by taking courses in the principal fields of the discipline, through internships, and offering study abroad opportunities. We offer students a curriculum focusing on politics and government which provides them a deeper understanding of the discipline. We also pride ourselves on providing experiential learning opportunities such as the Model United Nations and Mock Trial. By the time they graduate, our students are well prepared not only to undertake advanced study in graduate and professional schools, but also for careers in government and public administration, international relations, and the private sector.
