The political science major is designed to prepare students for advanced graduate education in the areas of American politics, international relations, political philosophy, and law. It also prepares students for careers in public policy analysis, international affairs, various levels of government, campaign management, interest groups, journalism, and many others. The need for Christians in the realm of politics and government has never been greater.
Liberal Arts Core
The faculty of Cedarville, and particularly the faculty of the Department of History and Government believe in the value of the liberal arts core. We want our graduates to be educated individuals, not just trained employees. We recognize that both education and training are vital, and we are convinced that in this day and age college graduates need to know how to learn as much as they need to know how to do a task. The career experts suggest that graduates of colleges today will change careers 4-5 times in their lifetimes. Those shifts require a certain set of skills that the liberal arts courses help to develop in our students.
