Political Science

Department Chair: Justin McBrayer

Associate Professor: Bradley Clark
Assistant Professors: Ruth Alminas and Paul DeBell 

The study of political science is concerned with the relationship between the governed and the government, the nature of the political process, and the role of the citizen in a democratic society.

The Political Science major  provides excellent training for the person who:

  • plans a career in law, journalism, or government;
  • hopes to work abroad;
  • plans to enter graduate school and later teach or serve as an administrator at the college level; or
  • expects to enter politics, either as a candidate or as an administrative aide to a public official.

Political Science course offerings are also available to the student who is majoring in another area but who wants to learn something about politics and government.

A minor in political science  is available for students majoring in other disciplines.
