The University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
The University offers a bachelor of arts (B.A.) and a bachelor of science (B.S.) in political science.
The political science major is ideal for students interested in careers in public affairs, government, politics, community service, or journalism.
The major is designed to give students a solid foundation across the breadth of the discipline. The American politics and world politics core courses ensure a deeper foundation in the institutions and processes of politics in the U.S. and the world. Students who would like greater depth in one of these two areas may use electives in the major to create a concentration in either American politics or world politics.
The Department of Political Science provides students with a rewarding academic experience in and out of the classroom.
Political science graduates are well-trained academically and experientially for productive careers in state, local, and federal government; business; law; consulting; journalism; communication; international organizations; international business and government; polling; campaign management; public and community service; and non-governmental organizations.
In addition, graduates are prepared for graduate or professional studies in political science, public administration, international affairs, and law.
Students have many sources of financial support for their studies, including financial aid, work-study programs, veterans' benefits, and special scholarships for entering freshmen and transfer students.
In addition, the Department of Political Science offers several scholarships and awards.
