Political Science

Why Study Political Science?

Are you interested in how the American political system works, why it’s important, and how it has a global effect? If so, political science is an academic discipline to consider as it serves as a foundation for work in arenas such as government, public policy, politics, law, and education. Most career paths in political science require a bachelor’s degree — and often graduate work.
