Political Science

PSC Political Science Department

Political Science is part of the department of Social and Behavioral Sciences. We invite all students interested in learning more about politics in the United States and around the globe to enroll in one or more political science courses.

All political science courses satisfy the general education requirements of Prairie State College and transfer to four-year public institutions as part of the Illinois Articulation Initiative.
