Shape the future
You’ve heard the quote from Thomas Jefferson, “The cornerstone of democracy rests on the foundation of an educated electorate.” Healthy political decisions require you to be both educated and involved. If you want to help shape the future of your community, your state, and your country for the better, we will support your goals. The Political Science program of Concordia University Wisconsin offers a well-rounded education and in-depth resources that are based on Christian values.
Explore the major concepts, theoretical views, empirical findings, and historical trends in political science while studying the foundations of American national, state, and local government. This involves a careful study of liberal democracy (and the competing ideologies), as well as the rights and responsibilities of citizens. Our curriculum emphasizes the importance of living in accord with the values and ethics of the Christian Faith; thus, we will examine the relationship between religion and politics in the United States. Ultimately, you will be trained to make a positive impact in the public square be critically analyzing today’s most challenging issues.
What to expect
Develop the writing, speaking, critical thinking, and research skills that are essential within public service. Gain hands-on experience through an intensive internship at the local, state, or national political level. Your final project will take place over the course of your senior year. Two courses, Research Proposal and Senior Seminar, will culminate in a thesis that addresses a political question that interests you. Upon graduation, you will be equipped to pursue graduate studies or begin a career in government, law, journalism, non-profit agencies, education, and the military.
