The Political Science Department offers a focus on four distinct but interconnected areas: American Politics, International Relations, Comparative Politics, and Public Law. These prepare you for graduate study, teaching, or careers in government from the local to the international level, as well as in the allied fields and professions of law, paralegal services, journalism, and business.

Our political science graduates are sales consultants, media relations specialists, teachers, global planners, and more with companies and organizations like Apple Computer, Inc., Associated Press, Johnson & Johnson, and the United States Chamber of Commerce.

Political science graduates have pursued advanced degrees at Drake University, Syracuse University, the University of Arizona, and the University of Oklahoma.
