Political Science (BA)
The Department of Political Science provides students with the information and the intellectual
stimulus needed to cope with the problems of modern politics.
A concrete orientation toward specifi c careers is provided by a program of coursework
that prepares students for law school as well as careers in politics, public and foreign service,
teaching, journalism, and business. Individual courses focus on urban, state, national, and
international government—the executive, judicial, and legislative branches; the politics of
Europe, Africa, Mideast, and East Asia; and the theoretical presuppositions underlying political
differences within and between nations.
