Belmont University's Department of Political Science offers the many advantages of a small private college atmosphere.

Our International Politics classes are taught by highly qualified professors, who place special emphasis on advising and active student interaction.    International Politics majors are required to develop proficiency in at least one foreign language and are offered the opportunity to complement their in-class studies with exciting study abroad experiences.  The department’s international Maymester courses, in particular, expose students to a variety of cultures around the globe.  

Classes at Belmont are kept purposely small to facilitate a nurturing learning environment, where each student is offered individual guidance and mentoring. For example, upper-division courses in Political Science usually range in size from ten to thirty students. This type of environment cultivates an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual respect.  In addition, professors work closely with students outside of classes as advisors for course and career options.

The ultimate goal of the International Politics degree is to provide a rigorous and challenging program that cultivates an attitude of student self-responsibility and curiosity that transcends the formal classroom.   In recent years, International Politics students have landed at a number of elite graduate programs and moved on to rewarding careers in diplomacy, teaching, research, and lobbying.   The successes our students have enjoyed after graduation in their professional or graduate school experiences tell us we are achieving these objectives!
