Examine power structures through both humanistic and scientific lenses.
Did you know that 20% of the women in Congress graduated from a women’s college, making them eight times more likely then their co-ed colleagues to get elected ? When you study Political Science at Ursuline, you’re going to be ready to use both humanistic and scientific approaches to understanding governments and other decision-making institutions, public policies, and political behavior, both in the United States and internationally. The major combines courses in American and international government systems with studies in law, civic rights, and political policies.
This program emphasizes skills that U.S. law schools want: critical thinking, clear written spoken communication, ability to work collaboratively, and a global perspective. Pre-Law advising includes LSAT preparation, dialogues on legal issues, and career planning.
Ursuline has direct-admission partnerships that would enable you to enter either of two prestigious law schools after three successful years with us.
Students in Political Science are well qualified for exciting careers in law, business, public service, non-profit administration, politics, teaching, government, research analysis, and grass-roots engagement.
