Department Chair: Dr. Doug Reed

Political science is the systematic study of government and politics, of institutions and behavior concerned with the struggle for power to make and influence authoritative decisions, and with the process of authoritative control in society.

The study of Political Science has value for civic education; for responsible preparation for jobs and careers as "representatives" of the political system, including law, law enforcement, public administration, civil service, and education, as well as elective and appointive public office; and for a foundation for graduate training in the discipline.

Here you will find the scholarly works of Political Science students.
