Why Political Science at St. Ambrose?

students talking

We offer extra-curricular opportunities that are paid for by an endowment that specifically supports students interested in political science and pre-law.

These opportunities include a fully-funded Mock TrialModel UN team, covering the costs for students to present their research at academic conferences, and a select few paid internships. At many other colleges and Universities, students interested in these opportunities have to raise funds themselves.

Personal Attention

Through activities such as mock trial and Model UN, students and faculty develop closer ties and stronger commitments to the study of political science and leadership.

Often our alumni meet with current students in and outside of the classroom to share experiences and assist the overall growth of our current students.

As these opportunities are presented to our students we find a far more dynamic and productive classroom atmosphere then might be the case at other colleges or universities.
