Department of Political Science
Majors in Political Science are prepared for further study at the graduate level or for a variety of careers. Many of our students become teachers or lawyers. Others work for a large corporation as public affairs officers or for federal, state, or local governments in numerous capacities. Some become reporters, lobbyists, or campaign managers; some have been elected to public office.
Completing a Master of Arts degree in Political Science allows students to deepen their knowledge of American and international politics.
In our Political Science program we offer four areas of emphasis within a bachelor of science degree and two minor degrees.
