Few other liberal arts colleges in the country can offer the challenging curriculum and high level of faculty expertise you will find in New College's Political Science program. Our faculty offer real-world experience gained through service in the Florida Legislature and as directors and managers of such influential national and international organizations as the U.S. Department of Energy, the World Bank and the Marine Policy Institute at Mote Marine Laboratory.
Political science is concerned with the study of politics in many settings. It is particularly useful to students who wish to go on to government service, law, diplomacy, and higher education. Central to the discipline is knowledge of the government and politics of nations and their sub-units; political philosophy, both classical and modern; international and comparative studies; public organization and policy processes. Basic knowledge of related fields and methodologies is also important.
Within general guidelines, students have considerable flexibility in planning their studies; some concentrate particularly on the politics of the United States, while others develop an interest in areas such as Latin America, Europe or Africa, and create their own interdisciplinary programs.
