Studying abroad can give students in the Political Science major an opportunity to see what they study first hand. Studying governmental structures and institutions in other countries can foster a better understanding for our own government. Political Science majors have many options to choose from- whether they want to study post conflict societies in Austria and Bosnia or comparative politics in Argentina- there are a variety of programs to complement their concentration to give students a broadened perspective and the ability to reason through complex situations.

See the list of recommended study abroad programs below.  Please be aware that for any external or exchange study abroad programs listed, students will need to check with their academic department to see if courses taken while abroad will transfer and fulfill needed requirements.
