Political Science is concerned with the theory and practice of politics and the description and analysis of political systems and political behavior. Our courses are designed to make students aware of the continuing questions of politics, and also to explore the institutions and political life of the United States as well as other regions of the world.
Political scientists measure the effectiveness of government policies by examining factors like economic growth, stability and justice. If you want to work in or further study public service or the non-profit sector, political sciences courses will help you along that path. Many students studying business and public policy at YHC gain valuable knowledge from political science courses.
