Politics, BA


We aim to do more than simply train our students for political or other professions. We produce broadly educated men and women who graduate with an appreciation for the role of politics in their lives.

Tools for Resistance

"Learning about the city we live in and its local politics is so fundamental to approaching the field in a more humane and just way.”
Mary Cruz

The Call to Serve

“USF instilled a need to give back and be a part of the greater community. I felt that majoring in Politics would be a way to make a difference.”
