Political science is for those interested in learning about and working in the complex world of politics. Political science is a liberal arts discipline which students may select as their primary focus or pursue in conjunction with other fields of study, such as humanities or sociology. Students learn to navigate the national and global political arena and understand the role politics play in society and the past, present, and future of humankind.

Political science classes provide a solid foundation for students planning to transfer to a four-year university to pursue a bachelor’s degree. It is also beneficial to those seeking personal or professional enrichment. Students will gain a broad breadth of knowledge and critical thinking skills which can be applied to multiple fields of study and employment.

Graduates with a political science education may enter the fields of politics, public relations, international affairs, law, public administration, or teaching. Many political science students participate in debate or mock trial during their time at SCC.
