At Political Science from Mississippi University for Women we develop skills too often left out of traditional political science programs: skills that allow our students to carry their knowledge out of the classroom, take action, and solve problems.  


Political Science from Mississippi University for Women allows students in the major to complement their government relations expertise with skills in advertising, visual design, web development, or marketing as well as in fundraising, volunteer development, or social entrepreneurship. Finally, all graduates are required to complete at least one internship prior to graduation; in conjunction with the experiential and service-learning embedded throughout their political science coursework, this ensures graduates enter the job market with robust resumes and real-world experience.

  • understand the major players, processes, and uses of power; they also know how to make an impact.
  • gain a deeper understanding of the interactions between mass politics and policy-making processes, the political strategies employed across the branches of government and at various levels of government, and the political and legal context in which advocacy organizations operate.
