Political Science: Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Political science analyzes the forces that shape government policy in both the national and international arenas. Such forces include power relationships, political values and ideologies, the “rules of the game” that shape government institutions, and the strategies of citizens and other social actors. The curriculum includes American, comparative, and international politics; political theory and methodology; and law and politics. Students also may complete internships for credit—with administrative, judicial, legislative, or other offices of government, law firms, nonprofit advocacy groups, and elsewhere.

Political science serves as a gateway to careers in government service, education, journalism, law, research agencies, political parties, interest groups, business enterprises, trade associations, and labor organizations.
