The Department of Political Science and International Affairs offers courses that contribute to baccalaureate degree programs in political science and international affairs, a graduate program of study in Conflict Management, a certificate program in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), a Master of Public Administration, and a certificate in Professional Politics. The degree programs provide students the opportunity to prepare for a number of career options or for graduate and professional study. The certificate programs focus on skills development with a broad academic base. Students also build upon a common core of liberal arts courses to develop the intellectual and social interaction skills to promote personal growth. The department coordinates the pre-law, pre-professional program. A wide range of courses in United States and international politics, offer support for other college or university programs. The degree and certificate programs allow students the opportunity to take an internship or practicum in their field of interest, or to participate in the university’s co-op program.

The department encourages student learning through extra- and co-curricular activities such as the Society for Legal Studies, Political Science Club, Global Society and Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political science honorary. Students are given opportunities to develop and demonstrate their skills through participation in Mock Trial, Model United Nations and Model Arab League simulation competitions.
