PO 1314 - Understanding Global Politics - A study of basic political concepts, institutions, and behavior. Political organizations and influence are examined in the contexts of contemporary Western and Eastern political systems. Historical and contemporary political ideals are examined as influences on twentieth century political systems and movements.
Individuals who appreciate politics, who desire to influence society, who enjoy debating ideas, and who like to organize people or events, should consider the political science major. The Department of Political Science at St. Mary's University is committed to education, to the scholarly life, and to an approach that urges students to serve society. St. Mary's Department of Political Science fosters the building of an engaged community characterized by social justice and civic conscience. Our goal is for political science graduates to apply the answers they formulate to their private lives and to their careers.
