The purpose of Dallas Baptist University's
political science program is to foster an appreciation for
the study of government and politics and to encourage students
to become informed and concerned participants in a democratic
society. To achieve this purpose, the program offers a broad
introduction to political institutions, processes, and behavior.
In doing so, the program seeks to produce servant leaders
who have the ability to integrate faith and learning through
their respective callings.
Goals of the Political Science Major
- Expose students to foundational courses
in American national government and state and local government.
- Offer a variety of upper-level courses
in the areas of American government, comparative governments,
international relations, political theory, constitutional
law, and public administration.
- Provide a broad liberal arts background
for those students intending to enter public service, to
attend law school, or to pursue graduate study.
- Encourage students to take advantage of
practical learning opportunities through internship programs.
