The Political Science Major
Political Science is the study of political systems and the ideas that bring them into being, transform them, and sustain them. Students in the Political Science program at Lyon College examine such enduring concepts as freedom, justice, equality, order, and power; explore the practical and ethical dimensions of contemporary issues; and compare political systems throughout the world. The study of political science provides students with a deeper understanding of the nature and responsibilities of citizenship and builds a strong foundation for a range of careers and professions, including public service.
The Political Science Minor
The Political Science minor is designed for those students who wish to supplement their major field of study with some valuable political knowledge.
