The Political Science Major

Professors: Bradley Gitz and Scott Roulier
Assistant Professor: Jaeyun Sung

Political science is the study of political systems and the ideas that bring them into being, transform them, and sustain them. Students in the political science program at Lyon examine such enduring concepts as freedom, justice, equality, order, and power; explore the practical and ethical dimensions of contemporary issues; and compare political systems throughout the world. The study of political science provides students with a deeper understanding of the nature and responsibilities of citizenship and builds a strong foundation for a range of careers and professions, including public service.

 

NOTE

* Students may use POL 105 and ECO 101 to satisfy core requirements.
