Programs of Study

Political science students have the nation and the world as their laboratory.

Topics such as American government and politics, world political systems, public policy, and law frame discussion and debate. Participation in the Washington Semester, internships, Model U.N., and Mock Trial enhances classroom discussion and provides insight into political processes and hands-on experience of the political world.

At Elmhurst, students study all aspects of political science, with special emphasis on:

  • American government and politics
  • International relations
  • Political philosophy
  • Constitutional law
  • Public law and public policy
  • Comparative government

Students can choose to major or minor in political science, or prepare to teach secondary school.
