About the B.A./B.S. in Political Science

The University of Bridgeport’s Political Science program introduces students to the theoretical and  practical foundations of political science, as well as primary models of governance in the United States  and in the broader community of nations.

You will develop both in-depth theoretical knowledge and a hands-on understanding of the American political system and its international implications. Tailor your degree to your career goals with the wide array of minors available, or advance your education with a valuable 4+1 combined bachelor’s and master’s program for even greater specialization in your field.

You will be well equipped with the analytical and research skills you need to prepare for employment in government agencies, nonprofit organizations, political organizations, journalism, and other related areas, or to pursue graduate study.
