Bachelor of Science Degree
Political science is the study of government and public policy, and the political behavior of individuals, groups and institutions. In Hilbert's political science major, you will examine how governments are structured, how they formulate policies, and the consequences of those policies, both domestically and internationally. In addition, you will explore the more abstract theoretical or philosophical questions of government and justice, as well as the day-to-day workings of the political system at the federal, state and local levels. The degree program will also prepare you for a variety of career opportunities in law, business, politics, and education.
