Political Science is the academic study of politics, power, justice, and government. Political Scientists examine a variety of topics, including voting patterns in presidential campaigns, the fiscal affairs of the Eurozone nations, how parliaments work, and debates about current events. The scope of study ranges from local politics to state, national, and international politics. Political Science is thus a broad, timely, fascinating, and perpetually changing area of study.
The major offers courses in four subfields: American Politics, International Relations, Comparative Politics, and Political Theory. Political Science majors are able think critically and analytically, write and speak effectively, and participate in politics actively, skills that are valued in a wide spectrum of careers.
A bachelor's degree in political science can lead to exciting careers in federal, state and local governments; law; business; international organizations; nonprofit associations and organizations; campaign management and polling; journalism; electoral politics; graduate education; and research and university/college teaching.
