Our political science majors have the unique ability to “capitalize on the capitals.” We offer opportunities to study and experience American politics, political theory, public law, international politics, and public policy inside and outside the classroom. We have strong relationships with Albany’s political agencies and offices and with programs based in Washington, D.C. and London. You’ll also get plenty of hands-on experience in internships, the Model UN program, and moot court/mock trial clubs.
Saints will choose one of four tracks to pursue: general political science, American politics and justice, international relations, or public policy and administration. Through a selection of elective courses, you'll be able to dive into a specialized curriculum that suits your interests.
Our graduates pursue graduate programs at Berkeley, the University of Michigan, the University of Texas, Rockefeller College and Syracuse University, as well as law schools including, William and Mary, Boston University, Boston College, American University, Fordham and Albany Law. In short, our Saints succeed!
