Why Study Political Science at Luther?

Our diverse faculty are experts in different areas of political science. They provide a wide range of course offerings that will help you develop a more dynamic and contextualized understanding of the complicated world we live in.

Smaller class sizes allow you to get to know your professors and your classmates. In courses, students and faculty can engage in deep discussion about issues surrounding our political system, allowing for greater conversation and better analysis.

Take advantage of doing research with faculty, internships, and study abroad courses—all exceptional experiences for undergraduate students. One unique opportunity for Luther students is the Washington Semester program where students can live, study, intern, and earn 14-16 credits.
