As a political science or political science teaching major, you’ll learn the ideas and theories behind local, state, national and international political systems and how they operate. You can tailor your coursework to areas of political science you’re most interested in, such as American politics (American political institutions and political behavior, public administration and policy and the law and courts), global politics (international and comparative politics) and political theory.
Upon graduation, you’ll have developed reading comprehension, writing and critical thinking skills.
As many political problems have no single solution, you’ll also learn to analyze competing explanations and solutions to political issues and how to present your own positions on them.
In addition, you can represent a country in our Model United Nations team, participate on our Moot Court team and conduct research in the Ogden-Weber region in our community engaged learning courses.
