Studying politics offers a way to understand and engage in some of the most critical issues of our times. Our country’s political processes are deeply divided, and our institutions suffer partisanship and gridlock. Our media, too, often substitute hyperbole for reasonable discussion. Our economy continues to struggle to respond to the challenges of globalization and to distribute economic gains across American society. Meanwhile newly rising economies give other countries increasing power. As we wind down the major wars of the last decade, we continue to face threats ranging from global environmental problems to terrorism. The Political Science Department offers courses that engage these and other timely issues. Students can choose to specialize in American politics, law and politics, global politics, political economy and public policy, or general politics. These concentrations draw from courses in American politics, comparative politics, international politics, and political philosophy. We offer hands-on experience in local internships and a semester program in Washington D.C., at the Les Aspin Center. And our extensive alumni network can help graduating students start careers in fields as diverse as law; federal, state, and local government; electoral politics; intelligence; business; and international and domestic community service. The major in political science consists of 33 credit hours of political science courses. Students must complete one of the five concentrations listed below, including 6 credit hours in major writing development classes. This program based on Law and Politics. In addition to Law and Politics, there are Politics, Global Politics, Political Economy and Public Policy, American Politics also available.
