Political Science

The study of political science develops knowledge and understanding of national and international government, politics, and policy. This program prepares students for careers in public service and private business, as well as for graduate work leading to careers in a variety of areas including law, public administration, policy analysis, foreign service, journalism, and college teaching. Close proximity to Washington, D.C., gives students the opportunity to observe the federal government in operation and to apply for internships and jobs in their desired field.
