Political science programs

As a political science major, you’ll compare the U.S. political system with those of other countries, study international relations, and examine issues of global importance. Your classes will be filled with discussion and debate as you and your peers are challenged to examine why you believe what you do. In the process, you’ll hone your critical thinking and public speaking skills and become better prepared for an active role as a Christian citizen in your nation and the world.
