About the Program
East Stroudsburg University’s Political Science curriculum comprises the systematic study of the theory and practice of politics at various levels – domestic, international, public and private sectors. Depending on their interests, undergraduates can focus on questions of a theoretical nature, the role and performance of political institutions and political systems, or the behavior of individuals and groups. Our Political Science degree prepares students to work in both the public and private sectors. Many majors also use this preparation as a basis for further study in graduate school or law school.
An ESU student who majors in Political Science earns a Bachelor of Arts degree. Several options are available to Political Science majors.
