Welcome to the Political Science Department
Welcome to the new web page for the Department of Political Science. In these pages, we will answer your questions such as:
What is political science?
How do I major or minor in political science?
What do I do with a degree in political science after I graduate?
We will also introduce you to the members of the political science department, highlighting their areas of specialization and interest. You will see that political science is a broad field that teaches students to identify problems, conduct research and investigate options, and apply potential solutions. While courses focus primarily on government and those around it, the skills learned are useful in all sectors of society.
