Welcome to Political Science
Politics influences, inspires, and sometimes angers us all. Whether at the local, national or international level, political action--by individuals, movements, parties, and governments--remakes the world. Lawmaking, activism, diplomacy, war, and, of course, elections: all are part of politics.
Political Science helps students understand and participate. With a faculty of seven committed teacher-scholars, we teach over 300 students each semester and advise almost 100 majors and minors. Join us as we study politics and become more engaged global citizens!
Political science readies students for careers in government, law, international relations, homeland security, nonprofits, business, media-and much more. Explore some of the great jobs our graduates are now doing!
