About

American politics examines the US political system, public policy process and political actors and issues at the local, state and national levels. The Political Science, American Government, Law and Policy program is offered by Salem State University.

Overview

Political Science, American Government, Law and Policy offers courses in American, comparative and international politics taught by skilled faculty with diverse ideas, teaching methods, and philosophies who are dedicated to quality teaching. Our courses critically analyze American and global political phenomena and how these phenomena affect our daily lives. Our classes feature active learning including Model United Nations; moot court and congressional hearing simulations; debates; internships; and service-learning.

Two concentrations (American Government, Law & Policy; and International Relations & Comparative Politics) are  available, encompassing the main fields of study within the discipline of Political Science. These optional concentrations do not add to the total number of credits required for graduation.

Usually, students may transfer in no more than 15 credits of Political Science courses into the major (BA or BS). Additional transferred courses will have to be counted as free electives. There may be exceptions.
