The Political Science major develops in students an informed critical outlook toward the origins, nature, and functioning of the U.S. Constitution and the institutions of government it creates as well as their role in shaping the debate on the important social, political, and economic issues of the contemporary world. It also acquaints them with the comparative politics of other states and with the intricacies of the relations between states and other actors. The Political Science major prepares students for law school, graduate school, and careers in government service, with nongovernmental and intergovernmental organizations, and in other professional fields.
