Norwich University's tradition of excellence and proud military heritage that began at its campus in 1819 is reflected in its online graduate programs that are offered to adult learners across the country and the world. All of the Norwich online programs offer relevant, focused curricula, and small, interactive classes. As an institution long associated with innovation in education and the preparation of the nation's business, government, and military leaders, Norwich faculty and its graduates continue to contribute to the development of the economic, political, and social infrastructure of the nation and the world.
What are the duties and obligations of citizenship? What are justice and power, and to what degree do institutions shape our political behavior?
The study of Political Science at Norwich University will sharpen your analytical, communicative and research skills. Through a wide variety of courses and experiences, you will open yourself to broader intellectual horizons and understanding.
At Norwich, political science courses fall into five broad categories:
American politics, public policy and administration, international relations, comparative politics, and political theory and philosophy.
We encourage students to explore opportunities off campus. The Washington Semester Program sends students to the heart of American government for a semester that includes a seminar, internship and research project or elective class. Norwich students have also served as interns in the offices of the vice president and several U.S. representatives, as well as the Attorney Generalís Civil Rights Offices. Study-abroad programs have taken political-science students to China, Mexico, Canada and Jordan. There are also plenty of opportunities to participate in clubs and activities related to the major.
