Political Science & International Studies

It takes sharp thinkers, skillful negotiators, and competent data analysts to navigate today’s globalized yet fractured political landscape. Political science and international studies offer complementary but distinct approaches to studying the political, economic, and cultural worlds. Both tracks will ground you in the history, theory, and effects of the world’s governing systems on laws, policies, institutions, and the public. Our multidisciplinary and multi-methodological approaches to these areas will give you the foundation to succeed in careers in local, state, and national government, law, foreign affairs, the media, and the business or nonprofit worlds. We also provide advising and preparatory materials for those seeking careers in the legal profession.
