Political Science

Active citizenship is the foundation of the Political Science program at UWS. We offer courses that are designed to not only create informed students, but also students who can study the roots of problems, formulate creative solutions to existing local, state, national and international problems, and develop advocacy strategies that ultimately address and solve these problems once and for all. We are committed to your education not only in the classroom, but also by facilitating various activities such as internships, student activities such as Model United Nations, and through various student organizations such as International Peace Studies Association and Political Science Association.

A liberal arts education prepares you for life, not just a job. A degree in Political Science offers the necessary tools to navigate the complexities of citizenship as well as valuable preparation for a variety of careers including employment in city, state or national government; non-governmental, non-profit organizations, media and advocacy groups; the law; teaching; campaign consultation; law enforcement; research analyst or journalism. Concentrations in American Politics, International Peace Studies and Political Theory, as well as Broad Field Social Studies in Political Science offers students a multitude of ways to pursue their interest in politics as well as a number of diverse career options.
