This fall, Milligan College in Tennessee will begin offering a political science major to prepare students to study law, work in government service, research, or teach in a school setting.

Both a general track and an international politics track will be available. The general track is designed for students who desire a broad foundation in all areas of politics within the United States, while the international politics track prepares students to engage political realities within the context of global studies.

The curriculum in the political science major provides a broad foundation in the study of American political history, the institutions of government and governmental agencies, and the relationships among levels of governments as well as the people served
by those governments and their
agencies.

In addition, Milligan students have the opportunity to participate in the American Studies Program in Washington, D.C. This semester-long program is offered through the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities” BestSemester program.

Milligan previously offered a minor in political science, and faculty noticed an increasing demand for a major in the discipline.

“Our calling at Milligan is to develop students into servant leaders who will change lives and shape culture,” says Garland Young, Milligan”s interim vice president for academic affairs and dean. “We are confident this new program will produce skilled and thoughtful graduates ready to pursue careers in public service and qualified to pursue graduate work in political science.”
