Political Science Department

Political science analyzes the political world, and students prepare for work in a wide array of careers as well as rich, productive lives as citizens.  You structure a major marked by breadth and depth, and you complement it with courses from across the curriculum. Yet you move well beyond the classroom, with internships, research projects, and off-campus study.  Majors look forward to careers in many different fields – like politics and policy (both domestic and international), law, journalism, business and teaching – or graduate study in a variety of disciplines.


Two students decide to create a moot court team on their own, and take it all the way to nationals.
