Political Science Program
Division V Chairperson: R. Hoag
Program Coordinator: J. Heyrman
A major in Political Science provides an understanding of how humankind attempts to deal with ordered relationships in institutions through the study of political organizations such as legislatures, courts, and executives. In addition, the focus of study is on local political affairs, national politics, and international relations. The student becomes aware of the scope of political topics and activities using philosophical, historical, and behavioral methods. Majors are expected to develop research skills in the pursuit of topics in which they have an interest. Political Science provides a particularly useful background for students planning a career in government or public service, law, teaching, business, and other professions that involve an understanding of ordered relationships.
The Program offers one major—a B.A. Degree with a major in Political Science as well as a minor in Political Science.
