Government | St. Lawrence University


Some colleges call it political science, but here we call it government. Our students learn how government works not only in theory but also in practice, often through internships and other opportunities in cities like Washington, DC, and Ottawa, Canada, just 90 minutes away. The focus is both domestic and foreign, and examines issues of power and justice.

A major in government prepares students for careers in the law, foreign service, international relations, cultural or economic development anywhere in the world, journalism, elective office and many others. Our recent graduates have been accepted to masters programs at Cornell, Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, and Syracuse University, and have also attended law school at the universities of Connecticut, Michigan, and Vermont (to name a few).
