Skills and abilities gained with this major

Knowing is Half the Battle 

One of the main skills students earn is an ability to critically think through policies, laws, and programs, and then being able to evaluate their purpose and effectiveness. Students will no longer be bystanders of democracy, as they gain understanding of our political system (and others) and how it works.

Let's Talk

Students gain excellent communication skills, both oral and written. Communication skills are the most important and sought after skill that employers look for in candidates!

A Better You

The overall result of the Political Science program is that students become better citizens, as they gain not only an understanding of the system, but also how to get involved and make positive change within that system.
