Whitworth University Political Science Department
political science department strives to embody Whitworth's education of mind
and heart through excellent teaching, open and robust debate, active
scholarship, and personal mentoring. Our goal is to prepare students for
careers in government and politics, law, humanitarian work, teaching, research
and peacemaking, and for work in related fields such as business or missions.
The department is committed to providing students with the political knowledge
and skills to assume responsibility in both the local and the global community.
Through the study of political theory and law, the analysis of a variety of
political systems, internships and off-campus study, and rigorous research
projects, faculty members challenge students to develop both the tools and the
vision for understanding, nurturing, and transforming the society in which they
live. All of our courses are informed by a commitment to justice and
reconciliation as articulated by the great political thinkers throughout
history, and especially as defined by the principles of the Christian faith.
