Department of Political Science


The St. Mary’s Political Science department curriculum has three main dimensions.

Students can expect to:

  • Learn the facts of politics and gain a comprehensive overview of the political world
  • Understand the relevance of politics in your life, in the world, and its place in the human life
  • Explore the political world within small scale human relations and groups, all the way up to international politics

The Political Science department mentors students through a journey from fact to theory, then on to the application of theory.
