The Political Science B.A. provides you with the skills and knowledge to understand the theory and practice of government and politics, both here in the U.S. and internationally. Through our courses, you will learn about political institutions and processes, and develop the capacity to think critically about political controversies, public policies, and societal outcomes.
Our undergraduate majors have opportunities to learn first-hand about politics through internships, study abroad, and in-depth research on honors projects or through faculty research grants. Our students pursue careers in government service, NGOs and non-profit agencies, law, business, journalism, politics, public policy analysis, and education.
