The Political Science Program at Texas A&M University-Texarkana emphasizes student engagement and success by providing academic excellence, a mixture of face-to-face and online classes, and assistance with career planning and placement.  Our semester internship program places qualified students with local, state, and federal government administrators, elected officials, and judges.  Our faculty and curriculum reflect the various substantive and methodological orientations within the discipline, providing courses in American (U.S.) Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, Political Theory, and Public Administration.

Political Science involves the study of political institutions, behavior, and theory in order to gain a deeper understanding of citizenship, resource distribution, and power.  It is a discipline distinguished by its relevance to the modern world.  Political Science develops students’ critical thinking and communication skills, and prepares them for careers in public administration, law, teaching, politics, elections, and research.
