Is political science the right choice for me?

When considering the right academic fit for you, the following attributes are typical of political science students:

  • Driven
  • Seeks challenges
  • Critical thinker

Through the political science department, professors do not teach us students what to think, rather how to think. I will forever be grateful to my political science professors and the classes that I have taken, which have allowed me to become a critical thinker and a globally-minded citizen. I have no doubt that I have gained the best education possible through the UWEC political science department, and that is largely in part due to the amazing professors I have had.
