Political Science

Department Website

This program is for students who want to teach political science in a variety of higher education settings. Doctor of arts recipients are prepared to teach a variety of political science courses, including those in American politics and in two additional specialties selected from among the fields of public law, political theory, comparative/international politics, and public administration. The DA in political science is generalist in nature. The emphasis is on a thorough grounding in political science supported by work in either one or two of the following social science disciplines - anthropology, economics, history, psychology, and sociology. The program emphasizes teaching political science rather than the development of a narrow research specialty.
