Political Science

Do you know how politicians get elected or how legislation gets passed? Have you ever wondered why countries get involved in some international conflicts but not in others? Are you interested in national politics and world affairs? Students who enroll in this FIGS will explore the various subfields of the political science major—including American politics, international relations, political theory, and public law—and will learn about involvement opportunities and professional career paths in both the public and private sectors. Come meet likeminded peers and faculty from the Department of Political Science!
