Political Science or International Relations Major

Students in Political Science and International Relations examine how humans organize their societies and make collective choices for the whole. They focus on the behavior of individuals (both ordinary people and leaders) and groups, and on the institutions that humans use to make and implement public policy decisions. Political Science majors focus on American and National issues, whereas the International Relations students in particular examine the interactions among states (countries) and on international governance. Both majors examine not just “governments,” but the entire process of governing.
