Why study Political Science?

Are you interested in American politics? International affairs? Critical issues like civil rights, health care, the environment and the deficit? If so, you should consider political science as a major.

Most social, economic and moral issues have political implications; and governmental policy affects most aspects of daily life. Political science is an excellent liberal arts major if you are interested in learning how groups of people govern themselves; how policies are made; and how we can improve our government policies at the local, state, national, and international levels. A political science major provides a solid foundation for jobs in almost any field, from business to law to research.
