The Department of Political Science offers a degree program leading to the bachelor of science in political science. The department introduces students to the analysis of political behavior, values, institutions, and governments. It also offers preparation for various graduate and professional studies and for careers in public service, education, and the private sector.
About Our Program
The Political Science Department blends traditional academic coursework with experiential learning opportunities like public and private sector internships, study abroad, and a Washington Semester Program where SCU students combine classroom learning with work at places like the Justice Department, international NGOs, Congress, and elsewhere.
