EIU Department of Political Science




Don't take our word for it

"My experience with the Political Science Department here at Eastern can be described in one word: magnificent! The staff here genuinely takes the time to get to know each student and encourages them to be the best in whatever endeavor they choose to undertake. With such a broad field of knowledge, the faculty helps students find their niche to start a professional political career. This department makes politics fun, interactive, and a joy to be involved in." "

"Unlike some of my classmates, I did not always have an interest in politics and the world around me. Since attending Eastern, my interest in the world has blossomed, pushing me to pursue a career where I can help others. The Political Science Department strives for students to learn more about public policy, law, and government, which will ultimately help me work in city management, where I would like to create policies to develop safer, more sustainable cities."

Kristen Gisondi ('16)

"Eastern, and especially the Political Science Department, helped me turn my interest in government into a successful career. Not only was I able to learn from some incredible professors in the classroom, but I was encouraged to expand my experience by participating in Model Illinois Government and interning for a state legislator. My involvement in the effort to build the Renewable Energy Center as the EIU Student Body Executive Vice President/Student Trustee ultimately helped determine my career path as an environmental attorney for the federal government. Choosing EIU and Political Science as a major was one of the best decisions I have ever made!"
