Political Science

The Political Science program at Lindsey Wilson College will enable students to understand the philosophy of structure of the United States Constitution and Government with particular emphasis on how it protects liberty and deters tyranny.

The political science program provides a minor in political science. The program is designed to prepare graduates for careers in the legal profession and/or government (as politician, political advisers, staff members, bureaucrstudent-in-frankfort.JPGats, etc.). The program is also appropriate for those who plan to attend graduate school in political science. The political science minor is an excellent complement to the history major.

Program Distinctions

Lindsey Wilson participates in the selective Frankfort Semester Internship Program. Coordinated by the Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities, this full-time, semester long internship provides students a rare opportunity to study and work in Kentucky state government. It also provides an excellent experience for political science students.

Why choose Political Science?

Political science majors examine world events from a variety of perspectives. Because many voters often make decisions in the heat of the moment, students learn to research the context in which governments have thrived or failed in their missions to advance particular social agendas.

Students often concentrate on a specific area of politics, like international relations or local government. Very few politicians understand all the issues facing their constituents. Therefore, they rely on teams of expert analysts and consultants to fill in the gaps of their election platforms. Focusing on these specializations helps students to build a track record of research and understanding that will allow them to achieve expert status in their fields.
