Undergraduate Program Overview

Political Science is one of the most popular majors at Marquette University. Students find our courses challenging, engaging, and beneficial to their careers. As a political science major, you'll study politics as an essential aspect of human affairs. We study the history and structure of governments, political parties, interest groups, and social movements. Our students learn about what does happen in politics and how to think systematically about what would be just and fair. The political science major has five concentrations: politics, global politics, law and politics, political economy and economic policy, and American politics. You can find out more about all of our degree programs in the Political Science brochure.
