The Briar Cliff Political Science major aims to provide the student with a comprehensive introduction to the discipline. Political Science is a social science that deals with the way human beings organize and govern themselves.

Political Science is a valuable component of a liberal education because it enhances our understanding of human relations and behavior, how we make decisions, and the factors that influence them. Power, justice, law, social order and the creations of effective and equitable human relationships are the essential concerns of the discipline.

The Political Science major prepares students for graduate study and research; for professional careers in business, law and government; for active participation in local, state and national politics.
