Political Science Major

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study (A-Z)

The Political Science Program at Flagler College is dedicated to providing students with the knowledge and analytical skills necessary for them to rise to the challenges of responsible citizenship and effective leadership in both a diverse society and a  global community. Through discovering and learning the concepts and theories of political science, students will be provided with the necessary tools to integrate new facts into their own worldviews; to reflect upon themselves in relationship to others; to take risks, to participate actively in political life, and to accept responsibility for their actions. Students graduating from this program will be equipped not only with the knowledge required to live and work in an increasingly interdependent global community, but also with the skills that will empower them to succeed in the workplace, graduate school, and the professions. In particular, this major will build upon the skills students began to build during their core experience; specifically, critical thinking and analysis, ethical reasoning, social, cultural and scientific inquiry and written and oral communication.

Total of 48 credit hours required.
