Study the ways our everyday lives are shaped by politics.
A degree in political science enables you to become conscious of the forces that give meaning and shape to our condition while furthering your understanding of change and whether it is beneficial for society.
Pursue a traditional political science major or immerse yourself in one of five concentrations:
• Poverty, inequality, and development
• Democracy and democratization
• Law, society, and ideology
• Political institutions and policy
You also have the opportunity to participate in non-traditional classroom learning experiences, which can include a Washington semester program at American University.
