Degree offered: Bachelor of Arts
Minor offered: Political Science
Ohio Dominican University offers three political science major tracks; one provides a general foundation in all of the areas of the major; the second track concentrates on environmental policies and issues; a third track is the pre-law concentration. In its broadest sense, these majors are designed to study government, law, political processes and behavior, the policies produced by governments and their effects upon the individual, the community and the world. The issues of war and peace, power and violence, law and order, justice and fairness, democracy and freedom, rights and citizenship, diversity and change are at the heart of the study of politics. Students who study political science are prepared for law school and graduate study; careers in federal, state and local government; public policy and private interests groups; businesses and corporations; regional, trans-national and international organizations; campaign management; journalism; and high school and college teaching. The liberal arts education political science provides has enabled Ohio Dominican students to find rewarding vocations as college professors, teachers, lawyers, civil servants, public administrators, city planners, policy analysts, diplomats, business leaders and informed citizens. Double majors in Political Science and Political Science in Environmental Policies and Issues are prohibited.
