The curriculum focuses on the nature of both the American political system (the context within which it operates, the forces that seek to influence it, and the consequences for our nation) and international political systems (global perspectives on political issues, the dynamics of international relations, and the functioning of global institutions and international alliances). Students in the major will develop critical thinking, close reading, and analytical research and writing skills.

The political science major is offered during the day and evening on NSU's main campus.
