Political Science and International Relations
Michael Federici, program coordinator
Students majoring in Political Science can choose a general focus or a concentration in either Public Policy and Management or Pre-law.
The Public Policy and Management concentration is for those seeking administrative careers in government or public service agencies. A combination of general political science courses, core public administration courses, pertinent political science electives, and courses in related disciplines provides a sound background for an administrative career.
