The Political Science major provide students with access to a wide range of courses in American politics at the local, state, and federal levels, as well as courses focused on countries around the world, international relations, and classical and modern political thought. The key educational goal of the political science program is to help students acquire a strong foundation in communications skills while learning about political behavior, governments, political processes, and public policies. Through a curriculum that includes coursework in American, comparative, and international politics, and political theory, students develop analytical, research, and writing skills in step-wise fashion from introductory to upper-level courses. Students gain experience in how to develop sophisticated analytical arguments, strong written and oral presentation skills, and the capacity to conduct empirical research. Political Science graduates pursue a wide range of careers. They may work in government offices (at local, state, and federal levels); political campaigns; private voluntary organizations; unions, advocacy and community organizations; foundations, social services, and educational institutions. A degree in Political Science is excellent preparation for law school, public policy programs, and graduate studies in international affairs. The Political Science Honors Program is designed to give highly motivated Political Science students the opportunity to take academically rigorous honors seminars with other honors students, and to acquire the skills necessary to undertake in-depth independent research on topics of interest. The Department's Honors Program is excellent preparation for graduate school.
