As a political science major at Wells, you'll seek to understand the human condition and work to improve it. You'll ask why, and learn to use empirical evidence to find answers. Our undergraduate program emphasizes careful analysis that leads to real understanding: we strive to prepare analysts, not pundits. As a liberal arts program, we provide a broad base of foundational concepts within the discipline of political science. We also offer numerous opportunities to apply your learning in the field, working in settings such as the United Nations, the White House, Capitol Hill, multinational companies, and diverse political organizations. The Political Science program is offered as both a major and a minor.
