Political Science (B.A.)



Barbara Kennelly ’58 engaging with a student

We look to our political science majors to provide the much needed dedication and leadership qualities that can help form a more just society. Our majors and minors study politics and government while actively participating in the political process.

Our program is designed to prepare students for professional employment in local, national and international governmental and political organizations, for law school and graduate programs in public policy, and for life-long citizenship participation.
