Political Science


Political science offers courses in American, comparative and international politics taught by skilled faculty with diverse ideas, teaching methods, and philosophies who are dedicated to quality teaching. Our courses critically analyze American and global political phenomena and how these phenomena affect our daily lives. Our classes feature active learning including Model United Nations; moot court and congressional hearing simulations; debates; internships; and service-learning. Through hands-on learning and internship opportunities, the political science department at Salem State prepares students for a wide variety of careers in the field.
