At the core of Endicott's Political Science program is the recognition that an increasingly interconnected world demands complex understanding, intercultural communication, and diplomacy as individuals, communities, and nations work together for common goals. Through the major, students examine the theory and practice of political governance to analyze not only policies and initiatives but also the ideologies that underwrite them. Along with a firm grasp of classic and contemporary political theory, a practical understanding of the workings of local and federal governments, and an appreciation of the unique position of the United States in the world system, Political Science majors gain the knowledge and skills to make a positive, well-informed impact on their world.
Students engage in political activity through coursework, club activities, community projects, and through professional opportunities in government offices and agencies, NGOs, law, media, and consulting firms. Working closely with world-class faculty and experiencing politics in action gives Endicott's Political Science majors an incredible advantage, whether they pursue a career in public service, law or graduate school, business or any of a multitude of related aspirations.
