About

The Political Science process at Emporia State University affects every aspect of our lives. Laws are passed that regulate our personal and business behavior; taxes are passed that impact everyone. If you are interested in political processes and how they work, and how societies set up the structure that regulates how they operate, you should consider a degree in Political Science.

Students in the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) track will benefit from a disciplined study of legislative, executive and judicial institutions at the national, state, and local levels.
