The primary goal of the political science program is to provide substantive understanding of the public dimension of human existence. Courses focus on four major subfields of the discipline: American/U.S. politics, international/comparative politics, political theory, and political methodology. Each course includes significant requirements for analytic exercises, critical thinking, and communications skills—both oral and written. Beyond traditional academic offerings, students can experience political and governmental life through internships or participate in more specialized study through directed studies.
Transylvania University admits students regardless of age, race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, national origin, or any other classification protected by federal or state law or local ordinance.
