Turn Theory Into
We're dedicated to analyzing public life and promoting positive engagement.
Political science is one of the most relevant majors in today’s society. You’ll learn how to navigate the complexity of the world and help address some of the biggest problems we face – like climate change, rising income inequality and accessible health care. But it’s not just about the knowledge you’ll gain in the classroom. Political science gives you the skills you need to digest and sort information – something that’s more important than ever in our saturated media landscape. With your degree, you’ll be able to cut through the noise and make an impact.
A degree that makes everything click.
So many of the things we experience every day are influenced by government and politics. But how many of us really understand the inner workings of political systems? If you have the desire to make sense of the world around you, a political science degree is a great place to start.
Broaden Your Career Path
Don’t just rely on your degree to further your goals – stand out to future employers by getting experience outside of the classroom.
Political science pairs well with many other degrees offered here at UW-Green Bay, like public administration, environmental policy and planning, communication and business. A double major looks great on your resume!

Gain Global Understanding
"By the time I was a senior in high school, I was deeply involved in Model United Nations and had taken a couple college philosophy classes through Youth Options offered by my school district. Through both of those experiences, I learned about human rights abuses that were occurring in Palestine and the Middle East. It ignited in me a desire to work on human rights issues, and majoring in political science seemed like the best discipline to lead to me to that."
