Political Science

Associate in Arts

Political science studies governmental institutions and the political behavior of groups and individuals. It seeks to answer questions such as: What makes some countries go to war with one another? Why do some people join terrorist groups? How is the policy making process different in Presidential systems than in Parliamentary systems? What is democracy and what makes a "just" society? The Political Science program at Mott is designed to introduce students to the major questions that define the field and the methodologies used to analyze these questions. In addition, by emphasizing the role and duties of the citizen, the program will familiarize students with the workings of government and contemporary political life so that they are able to approach the political realm with greater sophistication.
