• Political Science

  • Liberty, equality, democracy, power and justice: as an academic discipline, political science is committed to the rigorous investigation of these fundamental aspects of the human experience.

    Although politics pervades our daily lives, few stop to delve beneath the headlines of the day to discern the deeper patterns that are evident. The stakes in politics are high, and therefore political science at Stern College for Women furnishes students with the essential tools for critical analysis. These abilities and the knowledge that students acquire not only enable them to be more thoughtful and engaged citizens, but open up career opportunities in the public and private sectors including law, teaching, journalism, business, research, advocacy, consulting, public service and education.

    Political science at Stern College is divided into four major subfields: American politics, comparative politics, international relations and political theory. Each is dedicated to placing current issues and debates into their broader political and historical context. In addition, the major provides students with the flexibility to incorporate relevant interdisciplinary studies in economics, history and sociology.
