Political Science

Political Science

Political Science studies how government settles major societal disagreements and conflicts.  Disputes over health care systems, the running of the global economy, and the right of countries to even exist – these are the sorts of things you would look at if you took

Political Science at Brescia. You would also seek to understand these conflicts and to prescribe bold solutions.

Politcial Science is also about something called the political process and the way it allows society to complete projects crucial to the well-being of society. The political process includes prime ministers, courts, interest groups, elections – people and things you read about in the paper – who combine their efforts to produce cleaner environments, safer cities, and happier families.

You are able to combine your studies in Political Science at Brescia with studies in Business, Leadership, Philosophy, Psychology, or Sociology. These combinations offer a rich and invigorating experience for all students.

Your Future with Political Science
