Political Science

Program Overview

At all times, the political climate calls for skilled interpreters to help the public navigate new information, policies, and current events. These shepherds take the form of social science research assistants, political reporters and correspondents, political scientists, and lawyers.

As a student of the Political Science program, you’ll have the opportunity to take your passion for political science and liberal arts to a local, national, or global level. Learn how to define, defend, and critique political concepts, systems, and theories while demonstrating effective communication skills for a diverse world.
