The Political Science BA program at RMU is perfect for anyone with an interest in American politics, law, state and local government or international affairs.
Students have the opportunity to take a study tour class to Washington, D.C. for a week in May, touring our Nation's Capital and hearing from experts and participants in the political, legal, and policy processes on how government and politics work.
Internships are a particularly important component of a Robert Morris Political Science Education. Students complete an internship at sites such as: American Civil Liberties Union, the US Congress, State Department, political campaigns, the Pennsylvania General Assembly, the Peace Corps, local offices of elected officials, foreign embassies, think tanks, advocacy groups, municipal governments, law firms, lobbying and public relations firms, and trade unions.

Study abroad opportunities are an excellent opportunity for every student and particularly for students interested in international affairs. The Center for Global Engagement can help with these arrangements. RMU is part of the Council on International Educational Exchange, which offers approved semester study abroad programs all over the world. A semester abroad works nicely with the political science major, and is a life-changing experience.
