Students who major in the area of political science study the structure and processes of governement, both formal and informal, at all levels relating both to American society and comparable institutions in other countries.
Problems which are studied include the increasing influence of government on individuals and groups, the ordering of large human groups, the freedom of the individual, his/her equality and responsibilities in a growing complex and pluralized society, the nature and meaning of democracy, influence of clashing political ideologies and movements, and international relations including peace and war.
Students who study political science in a liberal arts setting are better prepared for numerous vocational opportunities of an administrative, investigative, or analytical nature both in government (at national, state, and local levels) and private industry; for research and teaching positions in political science and government; and as preparation for international service, for law and other professional careers.
