Program description

Political Science

Interested in a little nation-building? Whether it's going on in Washington, DC, or Wellington, New Zealand, Goucher's Political Science program provides a rich and diverse understanding of the character of politics and public policy in communities ranging from cities to international systems. Courses explore theoretical and practical aspects of politics and the processes by which policies, rules, and political cultures are established—and contested.

Admission requirements

Goucher College is a four-year residential private liberal arts college. The selection process is highly individualized, and members of Goucher's Admissions Committee read every application, paying particular attention to personal qualities and intellectual promise.

Program content

The political science major places emphasis on the relation between politics in theory and politics in action. It equips students with the skills necessary to conduct independent research on important political questions and to participate in public problem solving.  Students will learn to raise critical questions regarding power, political institutions, and political actors, asking questions in a complex way and distinguishing between tested and untested opinion, and to have a firm understanding of the political systems in which they are found. Other program goals include having students become engaged citizens globally, nationally, and locally.
