The mission of our department is to prepare students for the common tasks of citizenship. Democracy requires an involved citizenry which in turn demands that citizens understand the fundamentals of their political system. For citizens of the United States this includes familiarity with the institutions and process of government at all levels. Our core courses, U.S. Government and Texas Government I and II will prepare you to be an involved citizen.
Take a broader view of the field with Introduction to Political Science,
Introduction to Comparative Politics or Mexican-American Politics.
Two special learning opportunities enhance the government and political science classes.
