Political Science and Global Studies Home


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. allows enhancement of traditional classroom work with opportunities to observe the federal government in operation and to participate through internships.
