Politics

Everything is Politics.

Politics and power are embedded in everything from education to the environment, trade to terrorism, and the bedroom to the boardroom. We want our students to become informed citizens who think critically about the important issues of our time. Politics courses are designed to help students grasp the uses and abuses of logic, statistics, and rhetoric, to learn how to frame arguments, present evidence, and address arguments against their positions, and to achieve the ability to master new subjects on their own. Politics majors acquire the sense of efficacy and courage they will need when they decide to stand up and be counted against wrongdoing, wherever they see it.
