Perspectives

"My favorite parts about the political science program would have to be the courses offered and the professors who teach those courses. So far, since I’ve been at UWGB, I’ve been able to broaden my knowledge on the topics of law, politics and government through courses like constitutional law, global politics and many more...it intrigues me to analyze challenging subjects, take in the view from a different perspective and form a rebuttal if I disagree.
