Political Science, Minor

Political science is the study of power--who wields it and to what end. Political science studies how governments interact with individuals or other governments and examine the results of those interactions.

Students choose courses from five areas of study: American government and politics, comparative government and politics, political theory, international relations, and public administration and public policy. As they progress, they develop writing and critical thinking skills as well as a better understanding of the world around them.
