Political Science

Associate Dean: Justin McBrayer

Department Chair: Sarah Roberts-Cady

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.
