Political Science is a popular choice of students among the liberal arts due to its rigor and well-rounded curriculum.

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.
