Political Science – International Politics

According to the American Political Science Association, “political science is the study of governments, public policies and political processes, systems, and political behavior.” International politics, on the other hand, is the “struggle for and use of power among nations,” as defined by Hans Morgenthau, a leading scholar in international politics. Many students studying political science choose to study a specific region. Those with backgrounds in political science can be found in law, politics, and marketing.
