Department of Political Science and Sociology
Through a study of government, law, public policy, international relations, and area studies, our mission is to prepare students with knowledge and skills for a number of career possibilities, and to instill civic responsibility and leadership.
About the Department
We are a dynamic, student-centered department that offers bachelor’s degrees in both political science and sociology. Classes are taught by award-winning faculty, and students get firsthand experience of discipline-based careers through internship programs. Graduates of our programs have gone on to lead successful careers in government, law, public sector, non-profit management, and international and non-governmental organizations.
Our students take leadership roles in campus and community activities—through policy debate, Model United Nations, clubs, and honor societies.
