FAU Department of Political Science

Department of Political Science

The Department of Political Science offers undergraduate and graduate courses that contribute to the understanding of American politics, comparative politics, and international relations. The Department embraces the epistemology of social science research and helps students develop skills important to this field, and many others, including written and oral communication and critical thinking.

The Department offers a B.A. in political science which provides a flexible curriculum that allows students to design a program of study tailored to their academic, professional and personal interests. Our M.A. program provides a strong foundation for the study of political science with faculty and courses that expose students to the breath of the discipline. 

The Department offers several opportunities for students to explore their interests including our national winning Leon Charney Diplomacy Program, Advanced Campaigning Programinternships and a honors curriculum.  Congrats
We can't celebrate together, but all of us here in Political Science are very proud of our graduates. Graduation marks a very important achievement, and we know you will go on to do great things. Keep in touch! You will always be part of the Political Science Family!

Let me leave you with one small bit of advice from a former President, "Don't just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table."

You got this! Go Owls!
