Each of the disciplines in the Department of Political Science, Economics, and Sociology employs scientific methods to explain and predict human behavior. That means our courses encourage critical and objective thinking and the ability to analyze quantitatively and qualitatively, to communicate clearly, and to identify the ethical dimensions of political, economic, and social phenomena.
A major in Political Science, Economics, or Sociology prepares you for a range of graduate and professional schools or careers. Our graduates go on to be leaders in government, finance, law, and the non-profit world, along with many other options.
