Why Study Political Science?
Political scientists explore questions about law, government and humanity - questions every society faces in the world today. You will learn about our political systems, political leaders, government policies, social and international conflicts, as well as sharpen your analytical research and critical thinking skills.
Our goal is for our students to truly understand the discipline, develop their academic skills and think critically about the world around them. We prepare you to become thoughtful members of society and to pursue a wide range of careers in law, political science, international relations, public administration, communications and more.
