Aristotle described the study of politics as the master science. In accord with that definition, the political science major at Saint Joseph's University is rooted firmly in the Liberal Arts tradition of Jesuit education, incorporating both humanistic and scientific approaches in its curriculum. It familiarizes students with the main branches of contemporary political science, from the timeless classics of political thought to the contemporary issues affecting American, regional, and world politics. In all of its courses, the department seeks to make its students aware of the increasing interconnectedness between domestic affairs, international trends, and developments. By encouraging its students to develop a life-long love of learning, a sense of responsible citizenship, the habit of critical analysis, and the ability to effectively express oneself through speaking and writing, the Political Science major offers a solid foundation for graduate and legal studies, as well as careers in government, education, communications, and commerce.
