Political Science

Are you interested in law, government service, city management, journalism, business or international affairs? These are just a few of the types of work that are possible with an educational background in political science. Political science is the study of politics and government and examines ways and means by which societies identify and solve problems.

Students learn about the exercise of power in decision-making processes and its effect on societal resources. They determine and evaluate political values and beliefs.

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. An undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences is excellent preparation for flexibility in employment.
