Develop a critical understanding of law, politics, and government, both national and international, and their relationships to social science.
We train students in political science as part of an interdisciplinary major in social science to help them prepare for future careers in business, education, government, journalism, law, and politics. You’ll make valuable career connections outside the classroom, too, as you seek practical experiences or internships for credit in government organizations, social service agencies, or other appropriate public or private agencies.
Learn through unique, revered resources
Our Stover Center for Constitutional Studies and Moral Leadership, an interdisciplinary scholarly center dedicated to bringing insights from the U.S. Constitution’s founding era and from Christianity to bear in the contemporary public square, regularly hosts notable government officials and illustrious guest speakers to campus.
