Students who major in political science will learn how political decisions are made and will develop analytic skills useful in careers in government, business, professional schools, and not-for-profit organizations. To complete a Bachelor of Arts in political science students focus on one-of-five tracks: Justice and Law; Political and Economic Development; Elections, Representation, and Governance; International Relations; or Data Science. Students supplement their primary track with a secondary track, an introductory course in political science, and with a variety of courses offered both in the department and throughout the university.
Students in the program have excellent preparation for further study in graduate or professional schools as well as careers in government, business, and not-for-profit organizations.
