Political Science

Department of History and Political Science

Political Science is one of the most popular degree programs in colleges and universities across the nation. At Grace College, students find rich opportunities to learn the inner workings of the political process while being challenged with the Christian responsibility to promote peace and justice in a troubled world.

Students who want a political science degree along with a concentrated focus on foreign language work are encouraged to complete the B.A. in Political Science. This degree program retains the strong emphasis on both theory and applied learning as well as the strong integration of faith and learning. Those who do not desire a language component, but want the ability to conduct statistical research should choose the B.S. option.
