We build engaged citizens. Whether you’re studying domestic politics and political theory, or taking an in-depth look at international affairs, you’ll be prepared to take on the world.
Are you interested in American politics, political theory and international relations? Do you want to work in government or perhaps even run for office? Political Science students will not only deep dive into our nation’s politics, but will have opportunities to work directly with the politicians and public servants themselves. Earn credit towards your degree from directly inside our state capital building, from Washington D.C., and more:

As an International Studies major, your coursework could take you anywhere — including Lebanon, Bolivia and China. Research has shown that students who study abroad or engage in off-campus learning have higher GPAs, are more likely to graduate, and gain skills which make them more employable. Become a global citizen by participating in rich opportunities inside and outside of the classroom.
We have agreements with colleges and universities across the globe that allow our students to study abroad at the same cost as their friends studying back on campus.
