Political Science

NNU’s Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science is a multidisciplinary degree with a strong foundation in political science and historical fundamentals. Political and historical studies develop and sharpen the mind by training students to critically think, to evaluate, to communicate and ultimately to judge—all valuable skills for most professional careers. They also help students to become informed, active participants in the political process. Upon graduation, students are prepared for occupations in political science—politics, law, journalism, education, etc.—or for further study.Po

SPOTLIGHT

I feel like I've grown the most socially here. There's a line in “It’s a Small World,” that there's just one moon and one golden sun, and a smile means friendship to everyone. I was like, maybe that's cheesy but it might work... and people responded with a smile. I've made some good friends here and I'm really happy about that.
