A degree in Government equips students with theoretical and practical knowledge concerning many different dimensions of politics, including:

  • Domestic political institutions and processes in the United States and throughout the world;
  • International and transnational relations; and
  • The scope and nature of ethics, justice, rights, and obligations in political life.
