About Political Science
Political Science is important to society because an educated citizenry is the best safeguard for democracy. Political Science is valuable for individuals who want to know more about the values, laws, institutions and policy mechanisms that govern their lives in society, and as well, the differences between their system of government and those in other countries.
Political Science is an especially useful preparation for students who wish to pursue careers in teaching, law, public service or business. There are many minor program opportunities to further these study areas.
