Government, more commonly known as political science, is a very popular choice of students among the liberal arts due to its rigor and well-rounded curriculum. The discipline's subfields of American Government, International Relations and Public Administration are amply covered at McNeese State University. Additionally, government majors study foreign languages, philosophy, art, music, economics and sociological methods. Graduates have gone on to earn advanced degrees in political science, public administration, international relations, English, social work and law. Doctors Dominic Beggan and Aaron Sweeney, charter members of the Chi Psi Chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha---The National Political Science Honor Society, respectively teach political science at Lamar University and practice medicine.
