Political Science from Rhodes College is very popular, which is the result of engaging courses offered by an exceptionally strong teaching faculty. 



Our courses focus on American politics, political and moral thought, and the law. We also offer our students opportunities to learn outside of the classroom by interning in offices and organizations related to public affairs and political advocacy, as well as local, state, and national politics. Our faculty also direct the national award winning Mock Trial program, and advise the Tennessee Intercollegiate State Legislature. The Political Science degree is offered at Rhodes College.

The department can help open doors to careers and higher educational opportunities for students. We have sent our students to the top law and graduate schools, but many of our majors head straight to Washington, D.C., and others find rewarding employment in a wide variety of career fields including data analytics and mass media.  Be sure to read about how our alum have gone on to Answer the Call!
