Political Science at AJU College gives students the life skills,
awareness and education to be professionals and activists who shape our
local, federal and national worlds.
Students are taught to become empowered, informed citizens who engage with and influence their local and global communities.
Our three political science majors set the foundation for each students’ specialized path:

in political science’s sub-disciplines, with flexible course selection,
including Israeli and Middle East politics.

post-graduate degrees and careers in law, business, or in the public
sector as legal advisors, administrators and policymakers at all levels
Global Studies: Custom curriculum with courses in international

Off-campus, students can maximize their educational experience with
local student internships and study abroad programs that give students
international, life-changing political science exposure.
On campus, our Model United Nations and Political Science Student
Association challenge and engage students outside of the classroom.
The Political Science major paves the path for students seeking graduate
studies in Political Science and other social sciences, and provides
career preparation in law, domestic and international public
administration, politics, teaching, social and community services,
planning and policymaking, international business, and journalism.
