Political Science is the study of the processes, principles, and structure of government and of political institutions. This major is a typical component of a career path in preparation for law school. Graduates of WIU's Political Science program have been admitted to all of the law schools in Illinois and to many law schools throughout the country, including Harvard, Yale, Stanford and Georgetown.
Students in Political Science are also prepared to work in careers in local, state, and federal government as well as interest groups or other entities that represent interests before the government.
