Political Science

The Political Science Field

Political science explores the formal and informal institutions/processes of social regulation. Areas of focus are: analysis of government structures, the decision-making processes, policy content, and philosophical traditions.

The Political Science Discipline

Political scientists examine how governments mediate conflicts of competing social, economic, and political values. Of interest also are the political and legal relationships among world nations.

International Studies

Your Gateway to the World

Studying within the International Studies Program and earning your Bachelor's of Arts degree in International Studies is a great way to acclimate yourself with the various issues going on around the world. If you like studying culture and society, governments, the environment, or conflict resolution there are classes you will find interesting. Not only is there rigorous coursework to complete, International Studies students also learn a foreign language, participate in cultural activities outside of the classroom, and many study or work abroad. All of these aspects prepare you for a career anywhere in the world. Students graduate with knowledge of history, politics, economics, the environment and social and cultural understanding because of the interdisciplinary nature of the program. Use the links on the left to discover more about our major, and we look forward to hearing from you.
