Program Overview

The minor in Political Science prepares you for a world shaped by political questions and decisions. You will learn key facts, terms, and background information on critical political issues, so that you can understand primary documents, academic literature, and coverage of these issues in the popular press.

You will examine the theories and conceptual models used to describe, explain, and predict events, so that you move beyond seeing political events as simply a series of distinct cases.

You also will learn the research methods of the field, so that you can produce your own analysis of public policy issues and independent research. 

Bryant’s curriculum includes American politics, comparative politics, international relations, and political philosophy.
