Students in Washington DC

Many worlds of political science.

For over seventy years, the Department of Political Science has provided educational opportunities for University of Dayton undergraduate students who have gone on to become leaders in the worlds of politics, business, law, education and the public and non-profit sectors. Starting with only two faculty members in 1938, the Department of Political Science has grown to sixteen full-time faculty members. The department has over 200 undergraduate majors pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in political science or human rights studies who take courses in American government, comparative government, international relations, research methods, political theory, law, public administration, human rights and public policy. 

For more than forty years, the department has also offered a master's degree in public administration. This program has provided numerous public sector professionals for the City of Dayton, Montgomery County and the greater Miami Valley. The MPA is a 39 hour program which includes five core courses to introduce students to the field and seven courses in which students construct a program to meet their professional and personal needs.
