Political Science

Welcome to the Political Science Program at Colorado State University-Pueblo!

The Political Science Program at CSU-Pueblo offers a wide range of exciting and essential courses on topics such as American elections, the presidency, terrorism, public policy, international relations, democracy and dictatorship, human rights, and U.S. foreign policy -- just to name a few. The program is led by an exceptionally engaged and student-centric faculty who are committed to the highest standards of teaching and research.

The Political Science Program provides a stimulating and rigorous program of study that prepares students for a very wide range of careers in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. Indeed, because the political science curriculum focuses heavily on the development of analytical and communication skills -- along with a comprehensive knowledge of public policy, politics, current events, and history -- it is regularly recognized as one of the best majors for undergraduates.  

The Political Science Program at CSU-Pueblo is also home to the Center for the Study of Homeland Security, which offers a professionally oriented Minor in Homeland Security. Also affiliated with the Political Science program is the University's interdisciplinary Minor in Legal Studies.
