Why Political Science at Concordia?

Responsive Professors

  • Our political science professors are experts in the field, balancing their research with their practical experience to make what they teach relevant to your future.
  • Your professors will get to know you personally, challenge and support your intellectual growth, mentor you in preparing for a career and provide detailed letters of recommendation even beyond your graduation. 

Real Experiences

  • You could complete a service-learning project with a legislative body, government agency or other organization related to your field of interest.
  • College Democrats and College Republicans activities allow you to connect with regional politicians and public policy makers.
  • Our Twin Cities metro location is home to the state’s capital and a wide array of industry, governmental, and nonprofit employers, so our political science students turn theory into practice at nearby internships and jobs.

Relevant Learning

  • Because the coursework and experiences outside the classroom are designed to teach the knowledge and skills demanded in the marketplace, our political science students find career success after graduation.
  • Some of our political science graduates move directly on to advanced study in graduate programs, and others find immediate employment at companies, agencies, and organizations of all sorts, such as departments within the State of Minnesota.

Lifelong Value

  • Since a Concordia education is grounded in the liberal arts and exposes you to a wide range of disciplines across the sciences, humanities, and social sciences, you’ll graduate with versatile knowledge and critical thinking skills that are valuable in any career.
  • In our Lutheran setting, you’ll acquire greater self-understanding and explore your place in the home, workplace, community and congregation as you prepare for a lifetime of thoughtful living and dedicated service.
