The Department of Political Science at John Carroll University helps students broaden their intellectual skills so that they may critically analyze and evaluate topics in political science. As a political science student, you will learn about political institutions of government, political behavior, political method, and political theory. Our graduates have pursued successful careers in a wide range of fields, including government, politics, law, education, business, and journalism.
Study begins with an overview of this discipline’s basic fields. Afterwards, political science majors branch out into their elective courses, tailoring their studies to fit their interests and future career plans. So that our students may have both the intellectual and practical skills to succeed as alumni, all majors are encouraged to pursue extra-curricular activities, such as internships or participation in the various events we sponsor throughout the year.
