The encouragement and support from professors within political science builds strong relationships which not only last beyond the end of an undergraduate career, but provide valuable opportunities—such as student-faculty collaborative research, independent study, as well as presenting at the Midwest Political Science Association—which encourages continued learning and builds those analytical and creative skills which make our students strong candidates for both graduate studies and their respective choice of career.
