Description of Political Science
Political science studies governments around the world by concentrating on how a government's structure and function
affect social order. Students who major in political science gain a solid awareness in the diversity of government around
the globe and the various political theories, parties, and interest groups that correspond with these systems. In addition,
students develop an understanding of international relations, public laws, public administration, personal rights and
freedoms, justice, and political authority. Like all good liberal arts majors, political science helps students develop their
analytical and problem-solving abilities, as well as improve their written and oral communication skills. It provides
excellent preparation for graduate education in law and public administration, as well as doctoral programs in political
science. Political Science is also a good foundation for careers in public service, campaign work, and various management
positions in the private sector.
