It can also prepare you for graduate and professional study.

As a student in the Bachelor of Science in Political Science program, you take courses in Constitutional law, Indiana politics, urban politics, contemporary revolutions, political philosophy, judicial politics, political analysis, public opinion and political participation, and more.
