Political Science is the study of government and public policy. As a Political Science major, you will learn how to analyze and evaluate issues of power, social forces, conflict, behavior, political ideas, rules and laws, and institutional change.
Our Political Science majors become active citizens and community and political leaders. Early in your academic career, you will be introduced to each of the major subfields of Political Science, including American Politics, Public Policy, Comparative Politics, and International Relations. Later, you will focus on a particular area of political science that matches your intellectual interests and professional goals.
