Professor Fouad Moughrabi, Head
The primary mission of the department is to provide UTC undergraduate and graduate students with high quality instruction in the fields of Political Science, Public Administration and Nonprofit Management.
Students majoring in Political Science may earn a B.S. degree, choosing one of five concentrations: American Studies; International and Comparative Studies; Legal Studies; Public Policy and Administration; and Public Administration and Nonprofit Management.
The department offers an extensive internship program. Students may participate in the State Government Internship Program, the Metropolitan Government Internship Program, the National/International Government Internship Program, or the Nonprofit Internship.
The program is designed to achieve balance between theory and practice. Students will hopefully acquire a better understanding of domestic and international politics, are able to analyze and evaluate policy issues and become familiar with various theoretical approaches in the social sciences.
Students will be prepared for careers in government, law, business and education.
