The Political Science (American Government and Public Law Concentration) program at Salve Regina University provides a solid understanding of our political and legal systems from the founding to the present.



Students explore the origins and development of constitutional law and legislation, our governing institutions, our political process and the ideas that have shaped American political life.

Our Political Science (American Government and Public Law Concentration) program at Salve Regina University covers the full range of the discipline’s subfields of American politics, comparative politics, international relations and political theory. Students have ample opportunities for exploration and discovery through a range of internships statewide as well as our proximity to Newport’s Naval War College and the University’s Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy, where a variety of speakers and presentations consider the domestic and international issues dominating world events.

Small classes, led by a highly qualified faculty, enable students to work closely with each other and with their professors. Our challenging curriculum is designed to foster analytical skills and encourage discourse as students learn to gather relevant information, develop logical arguments and approach problem-solving with informed perspective.
