"The method of political science is the interpretation of life; its instrument is insight, a nice understanding of subtle, unformulated conditions." ~ Woodrow Wilson
As an important part of a liberal arts education, political science helps you identify and define important issues in the world, think critically about those issues, and encourage others to make a positive difference. As you explore diverse ideas and research methods, you will gain exposure to a wide array of viewpoints and perspectives on both political issues and public affairs.
Our goal is to help you become more conscious of the ways in which political forces shape your life and the lives of the people around you. We offer a bachelor of arts degree in political science, a minor in political science, and a minor in U.S. national security studies. We also support the Master of Arts in Teaching Program.
