What it's all about
Political Science is a major that can cover a lot of territory. From philosophy and history to statistical analysis, political scientists use many resources to help us understand our political world. Political science majors at Baylor survey the writings of great philosophers (such as Plato, Aristotle, Hobbes and Locke), learn about American political history and institutions, study the development of our constitutional law from the founding era to the latest Supreme Court decision, master the techniques of rigorous political analysis, and analyze the causes and effects of political change around the world.
