Why major in Political Science?
Political Science is fun and interesting. It deals with current politics and government functions.
More than that, politics is about power and decision making – two things that are a part of all aspects of life.
Who has the ability to influence others?
Who chooses which subjects are taught in schools, which projects are funded and built, or which kinds of research are worthy of pursuing?
Governments – and the way governments allocate power and resources – are the key to answering these questions and many others like them within societies and across all areas.
Studying politics goes well beyond one’s own society;
Studying political science can help one gain a greater understanding of the variety of approaches available for addressing problems and challenges world-wide.
