Political Science and International Relations
Understanding and Shaping the Forces of Society
Do you desire to analyze and address complex social and political issues? Do you aspire to engage society and confront injustice? Our political science department will equip you with the academic understanding you need to think critically about the world while also strengthening and widening your cultural, faith and personal perspectives.
Political science isn’t just for future politicians. It is for anyone who wishes to gain a deeper understanding of the forces affecting and changing society. Taylor’s political science and international relations department offers a holistic approach to this challenging discipline. You will engage with thoughtful peers, be sharpened and encouraged by highly qualified and caring faculty, and be given the opportunity to learn on campus, in the surrounding community, and through study abroad programs.
