While taking Elementary Chinese, I had the opportunity to practice traditional Chinese calligraphy. This was my absolute favorite part of class because it shows that there is not only a difference in the way words are written (characters versus letters), but also a difference in the method of how the language is written.

Hear from Our Alumni

“The most valuable lesson my professors taught me is that politics is a social entity which demands social interaction. They encouraged me to volunteer on campaigns. The more volunteering I did, the more contacts and experience I accumulated. Their insight and willingness to share thoughts and opinions is the most valuable quality of the political science program at Mount Union.”
Conner Brintlinger ‘10
Political Science Major at the University of Mount Union

“I currently serve as a law clerk on the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. My political science education at Mount Union has been instrumental to my success as a law student, practicing attorney and law clerk. Specifically, the diverse range of political science professors educated me in a variety of fields from several different perspectives. From political philosophy courses to state, local and international government courses, my political science education formed a strong foundation on which to build my law school experience.”

“I studied political science at Mount Union to be an active participant in debates, to think critically about the role of government, to form sound arguments and to shape the policies that will impact our communities. Now, working as a legislative director for a member of United States Congress, I am constantly reminded not only of the role Mount Union played in my professional development, but also of the daily challenge to see the world from different perspectives and to use my skills to help serve others.”
