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 interestConcentrate 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.
