This major introduces students to the study of political thought, political
behavior, and political institutions from a Christian worldview. It is
designed to provide a foundation of knowledge in the major subfields of
political study. The ultimate goal of political study is that of
establishing justice in civil government; therefore, this major seeks to
develop the student’s ability to understand and become involved in the
political process. Political science also provides an excellent foundation
for legal or graduate studies. Political science students will have
real-world experience through PSC 341, 490 and/or 495.
