Tomorrow's challenges require today's competencies. Skills in critical thinking, problem solving, oral and written communications, and ethics are needed to succeed in our global society. BW's political science program prepares you for a career, as well as developing professional, civic and personal attributes. You'll gain insight in political institutions, thought and behavior that can benefit you in the workplace and at graduate or professional schools.
Political Science is a popular undergraduate major for students interested in attending law school. At BW, pre-law students benefit from a liberal arts education combining rigorous academics, collaborative learning and experiential opportunities. Political science is an ideal companion major or minor for students majoring in business administration.
Learning is dynamic when theory melds with real-life application. Within the classroom, you'll experience simulation activities, student presentations, Socratic dialog and group projects. Beyond campus, you can join service-learning initiatives, travel the U.S. and abroad, intern in Washington, D.C. and at state capitols, and compete through BW's award-winning Model United Nations and Model African Union teams.
