Political Science Major
As a political science major, you'll study politics as an essential aspect of human affairs. Our definition of "politics" includes everything from the American presidency to overcoming poverty in Africa. We study the history and structure of governments, political parties, interest groups, and social movements.
Our students learn about what does happen in politics and how to think systematically about what would be just and fair. The political science major has five concentrations: politics, global politics, law and politics, political economy and economic policy, and American politics.
Live, learn and work for a semester in the nation's capital at Marquette's Les Aspin Center for Government, located four blocks from the Capitol. Or learn about politics in Milwaukee by working in a representatives' local office, joining a campaign or working in the city or county government.
