Political Science is a must take subject. No matter what your major or minors are, you will find that the political, legal, and ideological ramifications of government policies, their enforcement and how it affects the United States on an internal or international basis will directly affect you as a citizen. It is better to understand, formulate an opinion and affect the country’s future through your right to participate. Take Political Science!
