- ABOUT LAKELAND
Politics affect the neighborhoods we live in, the schools we attend, the votes we cast, and the taxes we pay. The study of political science directly enhances our understanding of everyday life by encouraging us to learn how people throughout history have used government, power, and public sentiment to get what they want.
Lakeland's political science minor introduces students to the main traditions and theories of governance. As a field of study, it supplements the major of anyone who plans to enter a career in law, government service, or public policy administration. Moreover, the political science minor can help anyone to take a more confident role in the decision-making processes that shape our world.
