Political Science focuses on the politics and policy of the United States. Students can direct their studies to study particular policy issues like racial & ethnic policy or environmental policy (among other areas). They can look at US policies comparatively with international politics and policy, or chose to study political theory and public law. We offer a Pre-law cohort for those who wish to study law further and have an interdisciplinary degree with Philosophy and Economics.
