Poli Science


General Description

Political Science is the study of government and political processes, institutions, and behavior. Government and politics have been studied and commented on since the time of the ancient Greeks. However, it is only with the general systematization of the social sciences in the last 100 years that political science has emerged as a separate definable area of study.

Political Science Honors

Political Science Honors courses provide opportunities for increased student participation, expanded reading, writing and critical examination of important issues related to the concepts of political science.
