College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: Political Science

From the most personal exchanges (families, schools, and clubs) to the most public interactions (local, state, national, and international organizations), politics matters. As a political science major at Iowa State you will explore these political interactions through a flexible academic curriculum. You will be encouraged to undertake in-depth study in a particular area, such as American government, international relations, public law, political theory, or public policy. Many prelaw students choose to major in political science, focusing on courses related to their future study. To help you develop the skills and connections necessary for success in this field, the department offers internships with the legislative and executive branches of our government, as well as the United Nations, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Nature Conservancy.
