Courses in political science are designed to arouse in students a greater awareness and understanding of political institutions, processes, relationships, and their underlying principles. One goal of these courses is to generate the requisite interest and skilled civic participation that are so crucial to the maintenance of a just, responsible and democratic society. In addition, the program is designed to prepare students for graduate study and law school.
