Consistent with the liberal arts tradition, the political science major at Merrimack College aims to provide students with a rich, rigorous, and wide-ranging educational experience. Our goal is to create an intellectual environment in which students can acquire knowledge of the discipline, develop their academic skills, think critically about the world around them, and prepare to become thoughtful and productive members of society. Political science majors should be able to examine a political situation or phenomenon, understand it in an informed way, analyze it from multiple perspectives, appreciate its complexity, and connect it to theoretical paradigms and/or practical experiences and considerations. The political science curriculum is therefore designed to cumulatively integrate the following learning objectives: acquiring knowledge and skills, developing an appreciation for intellectual inquiry, and promoting active learning.
