- Department Programs
The Department of Political Science and Law is recognized both internationally and nationally for the quality of its programs and curriculum. We offer state of the art political and legal theory in the classroom and in real-time international courses and internships. Courses such as the U.S. State Department’s eDiplomacy program initiative with Turkey, South Korea, Great Britain and the United Kingdom are a few examples. There are internships and practicums in venues running the gamut from municipal, county and state opportunities to international NGOs and a variety of countries. Opportunities to study law with faculty who have multiple degrees in the humanities and social sciences as well as law degrees launch students in career trajectories toward the highest levels of government and the judiciary.
