Political Science

Program Overview

If you want to explore how government and politics shape world affairs, then explore political science at Canisius College.  When you do, you’ll discover the inner-workings of local, state, national and even international governments.  You’ll analyze public policy issues.  And you’ll recognize the reasons behind the political behavior and culture in which government institutions operate.

Graduates of the program are not only prepared for careers in government, politics and the law, but business and education.  Some political science majors use their degrees as a foundation for graduate study in international governance, law or public policy. 

Regardless of how you choose to use your political science degree, you’ll leave Canisius with writing, public speaking and analytical skills that will distinguish you amongst your peers.
