Mathematics and Science Department Chair: Prof. Alec Ingraham To prosper in today’s society, our students must handle quantitative information intelligently. Most employers consider a familiarity with mathematical techniques a valuable asset. As a consequence, the mathematics faculty: • tailors its curriculum to suit the needs of the students and the major areas of study at Southern New Hampshire University. • offers all mathematics/science courses designated by the various cores. • provides electives for individuals wishing to emphasize mathematics and science in their educations and also for those intending to enroll in graduate courses that require quantitative sophistication.

Political Science Chair: Dr. Paul A. Barresi The political science major at Southern New Hampshire University provides students with a solid theoretical and practical foundation in the art and science of politics. It emphasizes the development of critical-thinking and analytical skills in political contexts, as well as the ability to communicate effectively both orally and in writing on topics of political concern. The political science major prepares students for careers in electoral or interest group politics, political and public policy consulting, the civil service, and the diplomatic corps, whether in the United States or abroad, and for careers or graduate study in any of the vast array of public- and private-sector fields that require a broad liberal arts education and the analytical and communication skills that the political science major provides, such as journalism, business, or education. The major also prepares students for graduate study in political science or public policy, and for law school, as well as for a lifetime of citizenship in a politically complex and increasingly globalized world. For more information about career opportunities for political science majors, see Careers and the Study of Political Science: A Guide for Undergraduates, which is available at SNHU’s Shapiro Library or through the American Political Science Association (www.apsanet.org).

New Hampshire Presidential Primary Southern New Hampshire University’s location in the largest city of the state with the first-in-the-nation presidential primary offers political science majors a unique opportunity to observe and participate in presidential politics at the grassroots level. In POL 362, which is offered during the height of the New Hampshire presidential primary season, students not only study presidential politics at the grass-roots level, but acquire hands-on experience as interns with presidential campaigns. For more information about the New Hampshire presidential primary, see The New Hampshire Political Library web site (www.politicallibrary.org).

The faculty also provides an accelerated mathematics sequence for day undergraduates with an interest and ability in mathematics. Science is increasingly an important influence in our lives, from the personal to the global levels. A fundamental understanding of human health and the environment, in particular, is central to meeting many of the complex challenges of our times. Science courses at SNHU provide an appreciation for and competency in cross-disciplinary topics that will allow graduates to make informed and meaningful decisions for themselves and generations to come.
