Department of Political Science
The study of politics is recognized as an essential component of a liberal arts preparation for citizenship and leadership in a democratic society. Indeed, the controversies that plague society and the world make the study of politics more important now than ever before. The study of politics enables students to be more rational citizen, more constructive participants in public affairs, and better professionals in any vocation that deals with the public domain. The department offers undergraduate degrees in Political Science and International Affairs, minors in Asian Studies, Latin American Studies, or Renewable Energy. Additionally, students can earn a Master’s or doctoral degree in Political Science or a Master of Public Administration.
