We like to think of political science as a way to deal with two perennial questions: Who governs? And to what ends? You’ll study the formal and informal political processes that shape public policy. You’ll examine the human side and the scientific side of political behavior. You’ll be able to make informed decisions about community politics, electoral politics, and advocacy. Put that all together, and you’re well positioned as a graduate with valuable skills in understanding complex systems and relationships as well as having political fluency.
Internships with government agencies, political parties, law firms, nonprofits and more give our students hands-on experience. And with diverse, challenging courses in law, international and domestic policy, Constitutional thought, and more, you’ll have a well-rounded education.
