About

It depends on people who understand the needs of the population, who are familiar with law and policy, and who are committed to making their town, their nation, their world a better place. That’s where you come in. If you consider yourself a change-maker, the Political science program of Capital University is the path for you.

Overview

What you'll learn

Whether you plan to run for office, or prefer to influence public policy from behind the scenes through analysis, lobbying or campaign strategy, our political science major will infuse you with the skills, the knowledge and the experience to make it happen. Through the study of how nations and people govern themselves, majors in the Political Science program of Capital University understand political theory, comparative government, international relations, public administration and American politics.

More important, they have the skills to interpret and analyze political events, which is critical to being a well-educated citizen of the contemporary world. In your Capital courses, you will gain a broad understanding of the history and theory behind American politics, an in-depth look at the trend toward party polarization, and an overview of how campaigns are influenced by the media and today’s 24-hour news cycle.

Where you'll go: careers and placement

The foundation you receive as a Capital political science major will prepare you for a lifetime of positive impact in your community and in your world through a wide array of sectors, from governmental agencies to private foundations to corporations with a vested interest in government regulations and actions. 

But your options don’t stop here. You may use your background for entry into law school (Did we mention we have a Law School?) or advanced study or another area of interest. 

Because politics affects each of us, both directly and indirectly, you can be certain that your degree will provide you with an ongoing basis for understanding what is happening in the world today.
