About

The Government program at the Smith College seeks to educate students about the nature and scope of political power, and to place an understanding of that power in its social, cultural and historical context.

Overview

During the Government program at the Smith College, you will study public opinion, political development and political economy. We address the concerns of ethnic, racial and political minorities; the role of gender in politics, campaigns and elections; and foreign policy. We examine fundamental and controversial concepts such as justice, democracy, revolution and equality. We believe the study of politics, like the political association, aims at the highest good, helping us to make better sense of the world around us as we seek to improve it for ourselves and others.

Fox-Boorstein International Internship

The Smith College Department of Government sponsors an annual competition for the Fox-Boorstein International Internship Fellowship. This fellowship of between $300 and $800, made possible by a bequest and through the generosity of family members, is available to students in any major, although priority is given to students majoring in government. It is intended to support Smith students working internationally at summer internships in governmental or nongovernmental organizations that involve a policy focus or involve global issues. Application forms are also available in Wright Hall 226. The deadline for application is usually mid-April.
