Political Science

Delve into the fascinating relationship between people and government. War and peace. Cultural values and public opinion.

About

The governmental and political systems of the world are informed by much more than just present day politics. Our students are challenged to understand, research and critically assess the intricate relationships between people, cultures, history, domestic governmental and political systems, and the international arena.

The Political Science Department offers students the opportunity to integrate theory and classroom learning with practice, through such experiences as international travel, summer institutes, internships, classroom simulations and participation in Model UN. Our graduates have a profound impact both domestically and internationally, and are involved in a range of issues and movements, such as human rights both at home and abroad, political reform, legal reform and public policy advocacy.
