Mission Statement  Learning Outcomes

Courses include basic training in political science, but our students engage in multiple subfields in over 50 undergraduate courses. Our majors work with faculty members to write senior theses or intern with a local government or administrative agency.

Students who are interested in the political science major should contact a member of our faculty. Majors should work closely with faculty to develop a coherent program of study. For more information, see the Advising link.
