Political Science

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.  

See the recommended course of study here, and the different Political Science courses here.  Students can join the Early Law School Admission Program as part of the Political Science major.  

There is also a Political Science Minor available.  The Political Science Club is active on campus, and is open to students of all majors.

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. Click here for information on political internships.  

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.
