Political Science

Welcome to the Department of Political Science!

In today’s world of heightened political and social issues and concerns, the study of political science is as popular as ever since it can be applied to such a broad range of meaningful careers.

The Department of Political Science offers a wide range of courses in all areas of the discipline, including American government and politics, law and courts, public policy and administration, comparative government and politics, international relations, political theory, and political science research methodology. Students interested in legal careers may major in Political Science with a Legal Studies Emphasis. The department jointly offers a major in public policy and administration with the Department of Management in the College of Business and Economics. Additionally, the department coordinates the interdisciplinary international studies program. Several minors, including a minor in legal studies, and two certificate programs in paralegal and lobbying studies, are part of the Department’s many programs.
