February 27, 2017, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences recognized outstanding academic achievement for LAS majors who are on the Dean’s List. To qualify for the Dean's List, a student must have been enrolled for 12 or more credit hours during the semester and have earned a term grade-point average of 3.50 or higher. Five Political Science students were recognized at the event: Cole Staudt, Jacqueline Garcia, Titus Kinyea (he’s the tall one at the far left of the picture), Sarah Moody, and Ellie Aldosari. Congratulations to all!!!

The study of political science is designed to enable students to become familiar with theories of public values and patterns of national, regional, and international political systems. A political science major should complete a broad liberal arts program, which would maximize opportunities to study in related social science disciplines, as well as in various areas of humanities.

Students will understand the interrelationships of the subfields of political science, develop skills in analysis and critical thinking, and be able to apply research methods relevant to the discipline. Review an example 4-year plan.

To support your academic journey, a number of scholarships are available.

The Department of Political Science believes that students who participate in an internship during their course of study will enrich their college educational experience. To encourage students to participate in these opportunities, the Department offers academic credit for internships related to political science.
