    Rowan University Professor & Chair, Dept of Political Science & Economics
    Dr Lawrence Markowitz says

    Political science is the study of politics, power, and government at all levels (local, regional, national and international), dedicated to understanding practices, institutions, and relations that constitute public life.

    It is also essential in developing modes of inquiry that promote citizenship that advances a more inclusive and democratic world. Studying political science in the United States - where much of the field is located - is greatly beneficial for students seeking to learn how to use theory, method, and evidence to study the political world.

    Studying within the US, especially in the Philadelphia area, provides a host of great opportunities to meet Americans as well as visit nearby cities of Washington, DC, and New York City. This is also the most diverse part of the United States, where people from around the world live, study, and work.

    A degree in political science is excellent preparation for any career in business, government, or other sectors that engage in public affairs. From learning about public policy, law, politics, economics, as well as how government influences trade, finance, and industry, this is a degree that will serve students in a variety of professional paths.

    Most people graduating with a degree in political science are successful in local, state, and national government, in careers as lawyers, as well as professional paths in business and economic fields.
