Major of the Month - Political Science
Capitol Hill

Our Political Science major gives students a solid understanding of theories, practices, and institutions of politics - not to mention an appreciation of how to create a more just and humane world. The Political Science major prepares students for graduate study in the field as well as for careers in government (the largest employer in the United States), teaching, journalism, law, and foreign service.
