Through the Political Science degree, students will assess the internal and external constructs of American government, international aid agencies, and non-profit organizations. With a 48 credit hour core requirement, students participate in courses that outline and explore the historical, theoretical, and practical aspects of politics.. Additionally, students will work in conjunction with an assigned faculty advisor to develop a six-hour internship experience. This requirement is designed to introduce students to the experiential side of politics.
