Department Statement

The Department of Political Science offers a B.A. degree that gives both a strong background in social science and excellent professional preparation. The major offers three distinct paths to completion, the traditional major and options in pre-law and public affairs and administration. The two options offer interdisciplinary pre-professional curricula. The department is strong in every aspect of American government (national, state, and local institutions, public policy, public law, and public administration), as well as Comparative Politics in international relations.  Political Science majors learn to be strong writers, public speakers, and researchers. Opportunities are also offered to learn advanced social science methodolog y and practical political skills, as well as to participate in faculty research. Students receive assistance in finding - and credit for completing - local, state, and national internships.  Graduating seniors report very high levels of satisfaction with the major, and the number of Political Science majors continues to grow.
