Political Science, B.A.
As a political science major, you will study American politics, law, comparative politics, international relations and political theory. You will analyze how power is exercised at the local, state, national and international levels and how these processes impact individual lives.
The major is informed by commitments to justice and reconciliation, as reflected by our department motto, "Do Justice; Love Mercy," based on the Bible verse Micah 6:8. Through classroom study, internships, off-campus opportunities and research projects, you will be challenged to develop both the tools and the vision for understanding, nurturing and transforming society.
