Political Science

Make change happen

Why study political science at LMC?

Change the subject. Politics and power go hand in hand – and studying political science helps you understand how. Whether you want to lobby for a cause or represent your community, you’ll learn how to start the conversation – and keep it going.

Change with the times. The political climate, much like the overall culture, morphs over time. Studying political science helps you see these shifts and understand their impact. Plus, it helps you see past trends and use them to understand historical events.

Change of pace. Once you've finished classes at LMC, you can easily transfer to a four-year school. You could study law, public policy, government, economic management and more. No matter which career you choose, you’ll hone your writing, analysis and communication skills.
