Political Science

You can fight city hall -- if you know how the process works.

The Political Science Department offers courses in American Government, International Relations, and Political Theory -- as well as service learning classes in Community and Student Leadership.

These courses will be valuable for students who are planning to transfer to a four year institution, majoring in political science, law, public administration, public relations, and related fields.  

These courses will also assist students in understanding current political events and help prepare them to fulfil their responsibilities as citizens and voters.

The political science faculty at SBVC possess advanced degrees from leading universities in the United States and abroad, with specialties in a wide range of sub-fields within the discipline, as well as extensive experience in practical politics.  They are well equipped to guide students through the intricacies of this challenging -- but vital -- subject. 

The Department of Political Science is a part of the Division of Social Sciences, Human Development and Physical Education.
