From the local village to the global village, a degree in political science prepares students for a lifetime of leadership and service. Since its founding by Plato more than two millennia ago, political science has sought to understand, promote and preserve the common good.
Political science majors at Houghton are introduced to an intellectually challenging and ultimately very practical body of knowledge—all with a deeply informative Christian perspective. They learn the elements of politics in the United States and abroad and find solutions that benefit the greater good.
Graduates go on to careers in diplomacy, government, international service, journalism, law, teaching and more.
