The program in Political Science is designed to provide majors with both basic and advanced courses in the discipline leading to a baccalaureate degree. The primary objective of the program in Political Science is to equip the majors, by the time of their graduation, with skills that will enable them to enter law school and to be employed by the local, state, and national government or related agencies.

The program of study in Political Science provides a curriculum that has sufficient depth and scope to produce, at the end of a four-year program, a generally well-educated individual. In order to achieve this objective the major area draws heavily on supportive areas such as History, Sociology, and other courses in the Social Sciences.
