A student who enrolls in any of our political science courses will gain insights into what government and politics are all about. Definitions, concepts, and theories of government and politics are presented in a clear yet comprehensive manner using a number of different educational formats. Consequently, the student learns how government and politics works at the local, state, national, or international level depending on his/her course of study. Students also devote their full attention to relevant current events as they come to better understand how the political arena impacts their daily lives. By doing so the Political Science Department fosters active citizen participation in the political process and makes a positive difference in the student’s educational experience.
