The Political Science program is designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of the essential aspects of politics. We offer courses in all subfields of the discipline, with offerings in American government, political theory, comparative politics, and international relations. We give students the analytical and critical tools necessary to evaluate political events and more importantly, to become actively engaged citizens. Our most common placement has been law school and the majority of those students have received scholarship offers to attend. However, a Political Science degree opens numerous career paths and aside from law school, we have placed students in law enforcement, journalism, graduate school, the military, business, education, and government.
