We help students embrace a political activism marked by grace, hope, compassion, and respect.
Anderson University's Political Science program involves the systematic
study of how political institutions influence the behavior of citizens,
leaders, and international actors to achieve public policies that
promote justice both nationally and globally. Our program will help you
prepare for successful careers in government, politics, law,
non-profits, teaching, journalism, business, and more.
you want to run for office, practice law, or work for an intelligence
agency, accomplishing the goal of a more just society requires critical
thought and analysis, clarity of written and oral expression, and the
ability to identify your biases so you can better understand the
positions of others. But whatever career path you choose, we will help
you develop the knowledge and skills necessary to engage actively and
effectively in the political process, and encourage you to mark your
activism with grace, hope, compassion, and respect.
