Political Science

The Program in Political Science emphasizes the importance of understanding how ideas and institutions interact in the context of politics, government formation and function, and international relations.  We actively support students moving from the academic environment to a “real world” one where they can put their theoretical and empirical knowledge into practice.  We also work with students to develop sophisticated writing, oral expression, logical reasoning, and quantitative skills that we hope will enable them to transition successfully into careers or graduate education.

  • Learn to think critically about behavior in political settings

  • Have the opportunity to spend a May term working on policy making with Redlands alumni, or intern for senators, representatives, executive agencies, lobby organizations and the Washington media through the Tinker Scholar Program

With a degree in Political Science from Redlands, you will have what it takes for a career in public administration, local government or in Washington, D.C.
