Susquehanna's Department of Political Science offers a challenging opportunity for students to become more politically literate. The program examines the socioeconomic and political forces that affect the present and the future in the United States as well as other countries.
Political science students develop a strong foundation in basic analytical and communication skills that may be applied to a wide variety of careers. The department's expert faculty thrive on teaching, and work closely with students to expand their political and international awareness.
The department encourages political science students to complement their major with a minor in another field. This combination enhances career preparation and expands future options for students looking forward to law school or graduate school, teaching, work in government, political office or business.
