Political Science

Political Science Major

Political science majors focus on political systems and the ideas that bring them into being, transform them, and sustain them. Group power—the 'how' and 'why' of collective decision making—is considered, as well as the ethics of power. Justice, order, identity, equality, citizenship, and community are also studied.

You will develop the habit of clear thought, rigorous analysis, and effective debate. Join us as we explore the practical and ethical dimensions of contemporary issues and compare political systems worldwide.
