Political Science Courses

The term “politics” refers to all the ways people make and enforce collective decisions or take collective action. People who study politics examine governments and laws, war and peace, parties and movements, institutions and practices, power and principles. They gather and analyze data about recent events, argue about fundamental concepts and values, study history, and even use literature and the arts to investigate political life. The study of politics often attracts students who plan to pursue careers in public service, law, journalism, advocacy, or organizing, but political science classes are a good choice for any student who is curious about public affairs or who wants to learn a broad range of methods for exploring the human condition.
