We provide our students with the tools to analyze and understand the history, key ideas, and recurrent patterns of politics, to empower them to contribute meaningfully to the world around them.
This commitment extends well beyond our courses to internships, study abroad opportunities, an active political science student association and advisement, including the University's official pre-law advisement.
We offer a major and minor in Political Science , as well as minors in Law and Policy and Civic Engagement.
Every year since 2012 the Political Science Department has awarded an outstanding senior-to-be a scholarship. The criteria considered are excellence in scholarship across all subfields (American, Theory, Comparative and International Relations) and financial needs.
