Department of Political Science
Political Science is the study of power, authority and governance in human affairs. Our courses examine the social, economic, cultural, historical, geographical and other forces that generate conflicts both within and among societies. With a degree in Political Science you will learn critical thinking, problem-solving and research skills as well as to evaluate competing perspectives and theories.
