A Unique Educational Experience


There's something special, and unique, about the Highlander Experience in Political Science.  Radford University's size allows us small classes with close contact with your peers and faculty.  Every student gets a faculty mentor the moment they step on campus to help them all the way through to graduation.  Our focus on Wicked Problems, internships, and career preparation mean your entire college career is built around getting you to that next step in your professional career.  

All of our faculty have been practitioners in the field, so you have the advantage of real-world experience in diplomacy, local government, political campaigning, and legal practice. Our faculty have relationships with the United Nations, state and local governments, major media outlets, and law schools just to name a few.  A network of alumni, leaders in their fields, are there to help make connections for internships and careers.  

Our close-knit student community means you always have friends to support you and work with you.  Political Science majors at Radford University are leaders, starting during their college career.  Our students are active in civic engagement, student government, and community leadership.  If this sounds like the right kind of experience for you, then it's time to become a Highlander.
