About

As a Political Science major at Marquette University, you'll study politics as an essential aspect of human affairs. Our definition of "politics" includes everything from the American presidency to overcoming poverty in Africa.

Overview

We study the history and structure of governments, political parties, interest groups, and social movements. Our students learn about what does happen in politics and how to think systematically about what would be just and fair. The Political Science major at Marquette University

 has five concentrations: politics, global politics, law and politics, political economy and economic policy, and American politics.

Follow your interest

Concentrate your studies in one of five major tracks: global politics (including international relations and domestic politics in countries around the planet); law and politics (ranging from the U.S. Constitution to international law); political economy and public policy (the relationship between business and politics in capitalist countries); American politics (for those who understand and/or have a career in American politics); and general politics.

Study government where it happens

Live, learn and work for a semester in the nation's capital at Marquette's Les Aspin Center for Government, located four blocks from the Capitol. Or learn about politics in Milwaukee by working in a representatives' local office, joining a campaign or working in the city or county government.

Learn from the best

You'll learn from experts in many fields, including Latin America, Russia, China, international security, international law and human rights, development, political economy, Constitutional law, political philosophy, Congress and the presidency, elections and public opinion, and urban politics.
