We educate our students to think critically and analytically about why government exists, how it changes, who controls it and how people behave in their relationship to the State. Our goal is to graduate students who are globally aware and are politically active as well-informed citizens that embrace their civic responsibilities. We pursue these goals in lectures, seminars, internships in local, state and federal government, and active learning opportunities such as Moot Court and Model UN.
The Department of Political Science is offering a variety of legal, political, and community internships with 23 different organizations in the Dayton area. Apply your knowledge and gain experience for course credit!
