Undergraduate Program

Students interested in American politics, the politics of other nations, international relations, and/or political theory can pursue 4 degree options in the political science department.

We offer a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in international politics.  International Politics majors choose from among three concentrations -- National Security, International Relations, and International Political Economy.  The Department also offers two new Bachelor of Science degrees -- one in political science, the second in social data analytics -- that emphasize data analysis and research across all areas of political science.


Many of our majors pursue summer and semester-long internships in Washington, D.C., Harrisburg Pennsylvania, and elsewhere in the government, non-profit, and business sectors.  Many also study abroad for a summer, semester, or the whole year.  Financial support for internships and study abroad is available for some through the support of our alumni in the Political Science Enrichment Program and The College of Liberal Arts Career Enrichment Network.
