Bachelor of Arts

You were born to make a difference.

Are you a skilled writer, thoughtful reader, and highly analytical person? Do you pay attention to the policies that dictate our government? If so, you may be interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Politics.

The study of politics is not a career training program. Like the other Liberal Arts, it assumes that rigorous education is an end as well as a means to practice skills useful throughout life. The questions that the study of Politics asks and the analytical qualities that it develops and nurtures are needed in any society. Such skills and understanding are often manifested in leadership abilities and are reflected in the number of Politics graduates in government, education, the legal profession, and business.
