About

The Department of Political Science at Illinois Dominican University prepares students for careers in government, politics, public service, law, general business, and more. Students choose from two majors: political science and international relations and diplomacy. 

Overview

Political Science majors at Illinois Dominican University study how and why societies have chosen to organize themselves in different ways, and how they interact. Subject-matter ranges from the political thought of Plato to the political, economic and social implications of the United States’ trade imbalance with China.

Within the political science major, there are four possible concentrations: political philosophy, political studies, international affairs, and legal thought. Students may also minor in political science.

Some students who study political science consider attending law school. The department houses Dominican’s pre-law advising program.
