Political Science

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or minor in Political Science is for those who wish to be part of the ongoing discussion of political theory and philosophy from a Christian perspective—discussing our government above the partisan level, with faith in mind. Students learn about the politics and governments of other countries, as well. 

Students get to study contemporary politics from a Christian perspective as well as the classic texts and contemporary trends in American Government, International Relations, and Political Theory. 

By examining the structure and workings of our U.S. government, students analyze U.S. politics and policies from both national and global perspectives, while considering the impact of the philosophies and wisdom of past U.S. presidents. 

Students will prepare for careers ranging from working on Capitol Hill, to teaching and practicing law. They will also have the opportunity to participate in active clubs and study in Washington, D.C. all while being challenged to dig deeply into how their faith can shape their political activity.

Political Science is Ideal for those Who Have:

  • A plan to enter law school
  • Strong communication, verbal, and writing skills
  • An analytical mind.
