The Department of Political Science has as its main goal preparing students for a variety of careers requiring expertise in politics and international relations as well as graduate and professional education, including law school. The department provides a broad education to majors in the four traditional fields of political science: American politics, comparative politics, international relations, and political philosophy. The department seeks to equip majors with the intellectual tools for understanding not only the American political system, but those of other major foreign countries, the dynamics of international political interaction in an increasingly interdependent world, international economic issues, and different philosophical perspectives on politics.
Special Programs and Opportunities
The department offers departmental honors for those students who qualify. Please see the description of the honors program here. The department also sponsors an award-winning Model United Nations Program.
