Our major and two minors include a separate track for students pursuing a teaching certification in political science or social studies.
Hope College students completing a political science degree will:
- Demonstrate understanding of core concepts and theories of the discipline and its sub-fields
- Propose and execute theoretically-driven research projects using both quantitative and qualitative methods of research
- Think critically about the content of the discipline as well as integrating content/theoretical learning and applied experiences.
- Consider how a Christian worldview shapes their understanding of the discipline in its theoretical and applied forms
- Articulate the meaning of engaged, responsible and informed citizenship across local, state, national and global contexts
- Explore professional and career vocational opportunities in politics, government, civil society and industry
