Political Science


Students talk at the political science table as students declare a major or add a minor or concentration during the Majors Fair in the Allen Ballroom of the Rossin Campus Center February 26, 2020 at Washington & Jefferson College.

The Political Science major prepares students for successful careers in political science-related fields, including academia, government, law, or international affairs. Students also master a specific core of discipline-based knowledge and an understanding of their civic responsibilities in a global community. The department provides faculty mentoring through academic advisement as well as through career counseling and exposing our students to practical political experience.
