Why major in Government?
Government majors study a variety of domestic and international topics that may include anything from international relations to political theory.
You'll begin with foundational courses about American and world politics before branching out into a wide distribution of courses that cover aspects of government and politics. You'll also have a chance to decide if you want to pursue an optional specialized concentration in American Politics, World Politics, or Political Thought.
Many government majors also combine direct off-campus experience with their on-campus learning to gain a unique perspective on the theory and ideas they have studied.
Whichever path you choose, you'll find yourself well prepared for success in graduate school or your chosen career.
