The Muhlenberg Political Science Department takes seriously the mission of a liberal arts education: cultivating thoughtful, articulate, active, and responsible citizens. By introducing students to the tools of the discipline -- its theories, concepts and research methods – political science enables students to explore the power relationships, institutional arrangements, social-economic conditions and ideological commitments that shape public policy, political action and public argument in a diverse and globally interdependent society. The Department offers courses and independent and collaborative research experiences emphasizing the development of writing skills, critical thinking, and active and intelligent engagement with issues affecting contemporary public life.
