Department of Political Science


 The Political Science Department graduates the third highest number of political science/government majors in the state, and is listed in the top twenty of all WKU majors. Political Science majors are some of the brightest and most dynamic students on campus. They gain experience in the international arena through their participation in the model U.N. conferences and study abroad, and are active in mock trial national competitions. Students in our department also intern for congressmen at the state and national level, giving them experience in the political field before they graduate. The Department strives to prepare our students for their choice of post-graduate options, including graduate school, professional school, or the job market.
