Why choose Political Science at CSULB?
The CSULB Political Science Department is known as one of the top political science programs in the CSU system, and one of the most reputable non-Ph.D. granting political science programs in the region. CSULB political science offers undergraduate and MA students a wide range of rigorous, intellectually-challenging courses taught by a diverse and talented faculty who take both teaching and research seriously.
The political science major teaches students to think seriously and carefully about politics while preparing them for a wide variety of careers—such as K-12, community college and university teaching; law; government and foreign service; non-profit work; and business. POSC graduates regularly are accepted to law school, M.A. programs, and Ph.D. programs at some of the country’s most prestigious universities, including Yale, Harvard, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and Northwestern.
