Political Science

Take Charge of Your Future

Welcome to the Political Science program at Texas A&M University-Kingsville. The purpose of the Political Science
program is to serve students, the university and the community through undergraduate teaching, research and
community oriented activities in the areas of government and politics.

The Political Science program encompasses a broad range of studies on the nature and function of political
institutions at the local, state, federal and international levels. The nature of our political institutions tells us much
about ourselves and our society. An understanding of these institutions can dramatically contribute to our ability to
effectively participate and utilize the system to its fullest potential.

The Political Science program offers courses in a variety of fields leading to the Bachelor's Degree. Fields of study
include American State and National Governments, Policy Analysis & Public Administration, Political Philosophy,
Comparative Politics, International Relations, and Public Law. The study of Political Science has opened doors
leading to careers in both the private and public sectors. Some students have taken positions as government
officials or educational leaders and still others have used the knowledge acquired to benefit private business in the
areas of international trade and investment. Often Political Science majors pursue graduate degrees in public
administration, international relations, the social sciences, education or law.

You've taken the first step to learning the value of becoming a Javelina Political Science Major. Join us and
