Department of Political Science

The goals of the department are to employ discovery learning to develop an understanding of both the foundational concepts of systems of government and the theoretical concepts that animate contemporary public affairs; to create a balanced perspective among the subdisciplines within political science; to empower the student to integrate lessons learned in other disciplines with those framed in political science and to prepare the student for an effective transition, after graduation, to either career employment or graduate studies.
