Political Science is the systematic study of politics and its connection to human life. It focuses on the way people are governed and how they govern themselves in a wide variety of settings—including the state, the workplace, schools, and the family—and the way in which governance in those settings affect their opportunities and shapes their sense of self. Students who elect this major examine, among other things, the relationships between law and political institutions, economic and political power, culture, and identity. They develop the analytical, interpretive and critical methods necessary to understand these relationships at the local, national, regional and international level. This discipline teaches students to write analytically and prepares them to follow careers in law, government, teaching, journalism, business, and the non-profit sector.
We continue to pursue our mission, of providing knowledge of political processes to a wide selection of students. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, or comments.
