Department Chair: Dr. Gary Rose

The Department of Government, Politics & Global Studies houses two majors: Political Science and Global Studies.

The Political Science major seeks to awaken in students an appreciation and an understanding of politics and government in the broadest and deepest sense. It considers democratic governance the key to civilization and ethics as central to democratic life. Globalization has brought about rapid change as citizens, governments, and markets worldwide have become increasingly interdependent. Today’s college graduates will need the knowledge, skills and abilities to thrive in a competitive, globalized economy.

Globalization has brought about rapid change as citizens, governments, and markets worldwide have become increasingly interdependent. Today’s college graduates will need the knowledge, skills and abilities to thrive in a competitive, globalized economy. The major in Global Studies responds to the demands of the 21st century by equipping students with competencies through a broad based and multidisciplinary program designed to prepare them for global engagement. It is designed for students who have strong international interests and wish to pursue those interests in a program of study.
