Political Science emphasizes the study of political institutions and processes of politics in historical, contemporary, domestic, foreign, and international contexts. The BA in Political Science prepares students for employment in various fields such as local government, nonprofits and NGOs, labor organizations, as well as lobbying and intergovernmental offices of businesses. Political Science is further a gateway to advanced studies in law, international relations, global studies, advocacy, public policy, public administration, international development and more.
Whether working in business, education, medicine, social work, the ministry or any field, a person will confront issues arising out of governmental actions and public policy. Whatever major you choose, a minor in political science will be a good complement and provide you with more knowledge about how government impacts our daily lives.
