The degree in political science is designed to prepare students for advanced work in law, political science and other social sciences.
You will learn both content and process. This degree is designed for those students who wish to study and understand the practical and theoretical elements of the political process, both historically and in the present day.
You will study the nature of politics as well as the public interest. You will be given the opportunity to develop not only cognitive skills, but also practical knowledge of the American political process.
In addition, you will be required to complete an internship that will provide extended exposure to patterns of political behavior and the formation of public policy. Your internship can include opportunities with a department of local, state or federal government, political party, public affairs organization or advocacy group. Huntington University’s Enterprise Resource Center will help you land the right internship experience that will benefit both you and the company for which you will work.
You will have several off-campus learning opportunities available.
