The Department of Political Science offers a variety of courses of general interest to undergraduates, as well as ample opportunity for students to specialize in the study of government and politics. The political science discipline is broad and diverse ranging from the study of campaigns and elections to analysis of political philosophy. Political science gives attention to the theory and practice of government at all levels from local to international, as well as to the complex relationships between social values and the formulation of public policy. As a blend of the theoretical and the practical, political science has much to offer as an undergraduate major and as an elective field for the non-major. It provides a broad liberal arts background for professional careers in law, government service, foreign service, business, journalism, and public school teaching. It offers a good foundation for those wishing to pursue post-graduate study, especially in the fields of law, political science, and public administration. For those interested in specializing in fields outside of law and government, political science courses can contribute significantly to an awareness of public issues and an appreciation of the complexity of modern society.
