Political science: critical thinking in action
Political science is the study of power, authority and governance in human affairs. Together, our students and faculty examine the social, economic, cultural, historical, geographical and other forces that generate conflicts in and between societies.
The beauty of a political science degree is that it really gives you the ability to think critically and to look at a problem or an event through different lenses in order to get a better picture of what’s going on.—Jenny Bunning, BA '11
