A message from the chair…
Why should you consider a Political Science major or minor, or just sampling one or more courses in Political Science?
  • because you are interested in the subject.
  • because you want to be a politically well informed, responsible citizen.
  • because you are contemplating a career in law, politics, or public administration.
  • because most Political Science courses count toward satisfaction of the University’s general education requirement in the social sciences.
  • because some Political Science courses are required in support of certain other major programs or for teaching certification.
  • because you want to attend the Washington Semester Program.
  • because you have heard that the teachers are awesome.
  • because you are just curious.
  • other.
  • any of the above.
I hope to meet you sometime soon.

Dr. Jules Gleicher, Chairman
