Political Science students at Benedictine learn theoretical and practical material about political systems and their processes, both domestic and international, as part of our overarching goal to instill a strong understanding of the concept of citizenship and a commitment to service. Our faculty take pride in challenging our students and helping them to develop critical research, writing, and oral communications skills. Students also benefit from participating in the Center for Civic Leadership and the Department's nationally-recognized Mock Trial and Model United Nations programs. Graduates of our programs in political science are well prepared to pursue career opportunities in national, state, and local government, journalism, education, nonprofit organizations, and international development, among others, as well as graduate study in fields like law, political science, public administration, and business.
