About

Delaware State University’s political science department is ideally suited to the current era of political change — one marked by the first multiracial U.S. president. The Political Science program of Delaware State University offers a multicultural perspective that emphasizes ethnic/racial diversity and cultural convergence.

Overview

Our courses and faculty share a strong global orientation, enabling students to gain an understanding of politics on all five continents.

We also take a multidisciplinary approach to political science, integrating it with material drawn from philosophy, law, economics, sociology, history, and other disciplines. The result is a political science degree of extraordinary academic breadth and richness. Multicultural and multidisciplinary, it is truly a liberal arts education for the 21st century.

Political science majors can choose to minor in Africana Studies, Law Studies, or Philosophy.
