Our program provides both undergraduate and graduate students with the critical-thinking and writing skills required for civic engagement in a democratic society. The Department is also committed to a curriculum that explores all aspects of politics so as to develop informed, engaged, and thoughtful global citizens. Our graduates then go on to pursue careers in the public, non-profit, and private sectors. Others pursue further study in political science, law, public service and administration, criminal justice, non-profit administration, global politics, and international relations. The program also includes opportunities for internships related to domestic and international politics and study abroad.
