Undergraduate Program

Our undergraduate political science program is grounded in the classics yet oriented toward the future.

We start with ancient Greek political thought to lay the foundations for understanding political action. These and more modern political philosophers suggest ways to live and to govern the community.

We build on those foundations with modern quantitative analysis, institutional exploration of American government, comparative analysis of the world, and practical internship experience.

Students learn strong critical thinking and communication skills.

We explore what “is” and what “ought to be.”

We will expose you to normative understandings of the world while giving you the tools to confront and critique the modern world.

The degree combines political philosophy, public policy, international comparisons, entrepreneurial action, and practical experience.

Our students follow many career paths, from the law to business, government service, diplomacy, and social activism.

We’re proud of our students. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________
