Major in POLITICAL SCIENCE

General

Program Description

Political Science encompasses the study of political theories, processes and institutions alongside the practice of government and politics. Xavier's program is structured to give students a systematic view of the major fields of political science, including American government, comparative government, political theory and international relations.

The program also provides students the opportunity to examine particular topics in depth through elective courses, as well as the chance to engage politics directly by participating in one of our department's political internship programs or engaging in a faculty-mentored undergraduate research project of their own.
