Thank you for your interest in the Political Science Program at Saint Augustine’s University. Students join the activities of our program as majors, as non-majors enrolled in popular courses such as Constitutional Law, or as participants in our highly related minor programs (Political Science, Prelaw, and Public Policy) . Our location, about one mile from the seat of NC government, offers easy access to extracurricular learning opportunities (such as internships, lobbying, and more).
The dedicated faculty of the department are here to mentor, advise, and teach you in the classroom and outside of it. The program is designed to teach students to apply systematic analysis to the problems of today’s world, to understand and work with the many cultures of today’s diverse but interconnected societies, and to perform effective research, analysis, critical thinking and communication.
Students can expect to enjoy programs, experiences and opportunities that will facilitate the pursuit of meaningful careers.
