The Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science prepares students to excel in competitive graduate and professional programs as well as careers in law, government and business.
Recently, students have interned at “Meet the Press,” The Washington Times, the United States Supreme Court and with various federal departments, agencies and members of Congress.
Students gain a foundational understanding of the important theories, methods and research findings of political scientists and are prepared to relate this specialized knowledge to their primary field of study.
Every student’s story is different, and how you choose to take advantage of the numerous opportunities to learn, grow and flourish is up to you.
Following graduation, many of our graduates attend top law schools or pursue advanced degrees in political science, public administration and public policy.
An integral component to an excellent undergraduate education, research opportunities help prepare students for top graduate and professional programs and successful careers in professional sectors.
