Welcome to Political Science. We appreciate you considering our department as a plan of study for your major or even your minor.
The Political Science Department at EIU values an active learning environment that fully engages students in the study of politics, government and public policy. Below you will find three photos that show the dynamic nature of the student political science experience at EIU, along with two documents designed to introduce you to our program, curriculum and degree options.
