Bachelor of Arts

Working together to create a more just world.

At Regis, we study politics in a broad context, tackling questions of power, authority, social and economic justice, legitimacy and the common good. You might investigate neighborhood-level protest movements, analyze how federal policies are made, understand communal violence and social change, or study the ways countries behave in the modern international system. You will explore both empirical and ethical components of issues like racial and gender justice, economic inequality, immigration, and the impacts of climate change.

By cultivating critical thinking, communication and analysis skills, a Politics degree from Regis prepares you for a wide range of career paths, including public service, nonprofit, education, journalism, law, activism and entrepreneurship. Just as importantly, you will be prepared for a lifetime of learning and engagement with your community, both locally and globally.
