Political Science

The study of politics includes not only basic information about government and political process, but also explores broad issues of power, conflict, peace, citizenship, representation, and justice. Through political science courses, students will learn about political institutions and processes and develop the capacity to think critically about political controversies, public policies, and their outcomes. The program will teach you how to evaluate individual, group, and mass behavior in political settings. Writing, research, and analytical skills are emphasized in this field of study. These skills are critical for employment in government, business, law, and communications.
