Welcome to the Department of Politics
The Department of Politics at The Catholic University of America provides a unique liberal arts approach to the study of politics while taking advantage of our location in the nation's capital. Our courses examine the historical and theoretical foundations of politics as well as its practical side. Classes are offered in a range of subfields within the study of political science, including American politics, world politics (including international relations and comparative politics), and political theory. In addition, our proximity to Capitol Hill and downtown Washington, D.C. provides students with easy access to events, activities, internships, and other educational and career-related opportunities in politics.
In addition to a bachelor of arts degree, the department offers doctorate and master's degrees in American government, political theory, and world politics. Off-campus M.A. programs are offered on Capitol Hill in Congressional and Presidential Studies and in International Affairs. Qualified students may also complete a joint J.D./M.A. with the Columbus School of Law. Our graduate students have gone on to diverse careers in politics, law, government, public policy and academia.
