Are you interested in American politics? International affairs? Critical issues such as health, the environment, or civil rights? Do you want to study these subjects and pursue a career based on your interest? If so, you should select political science as a major.
Political science is the study of government and public policy and the political behavior of individuals and groups. Political science uses both humanistic and scientific perspectives and skills to examine the United States, all countries and regions of the world, and international relations.
Political science majors acquire skills in writing, communications, and analysis that are critical to a liberal arts education. A liberal arts education prepares students to think independently, with tolerance for others and concern for current affairs.
