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. Calligraphy is a traditional part of Chinese history and culture, and being able to practice it myself made me respect that aspect of the Chinese culture even more. It is no easy feat to write using a calligraphy brush!
Political Science Careers

An increase in interest in politics, foreign affairs and public policy, including social and environmental policy issues, healthcare and immigration, is leading the demand for increased research efforts in this innovative field.
Our major in political science offers an applied approach to the study of politics while providing a broad education in American government, political theory and international politics. The program emphasizes practical experiences with a wide range of internships as well as opportunities to meet with public officials from both parties and from all levels of government.
