Political Science is the study of the events, people, issues and institutions that shape political decision making. Our classes address questions of war and peace, representation and democracy, and law and morality. Our students build upon their classroom learning with valuable experiences studying and interning in Albany, Washington, D.C., London, and many other locations. See more
