Political Science Program

A successful career in this field begins with a firm grounding in a Liberal Arts education. The major's core curriculum stresses student learning in such diverse areas as American politics and government, international and comparative politics, constitutional law, state and local politics, and the American Presidency. This broad array of courses allows students to shape their major while being broadly prepared for a wide range of professional fields after graduation.

The Political Science major is tightly interwoven into the fabric of the university community. All students will benefit from USF's commitment to the importance of law and politics in shaping students' awareness of issues that affect the local, national and global community. As a Franciscan institution of higher learning, USF will help students develop a deeper appreciation for the potential of law and politics to create meaningful social change in broad areas like social justice, diversity and conflict resolution.
