“Dominican’s faculty and staff go above and beyond to insure that the education we receive will prepare us for whatever our next step may be. In the political science department, the focus is on an interdisciplinary approach to education and scholarship. Students have the privilege to study an array of subjects under the guidance of truly remarkable faculty who never cease to believe in our abilities. It’s a great time to be at Dominican!"

"The department of Political Science at Dominican University of California provides an environment where students are free to challenge their professors and ask provocative questions while having their own thoughts and beliefs tested. It is this scholarly dialogue that trains students to think critically and try to change the world in which they live for the better."
—Richard Maher, Class of 2008, Political Science
"The Political Science Department at Dominican University helped me to think not just philosophically but practically as well. They helped me to be more thorough in gathering and processing information to either build an argument or to more clearly evaluate other claims."
—Mark Reynolds, Class of 2008, Political Science
"The faculty in the Political Science Department have challenged but also encouraged me to develop my skills and reach my potential. I have had a wonderful experience and I have benefited greatly from all that the department has to offer. For example, Model United Nations competitions and even the remarkable opportunity to intern at the U.S. House of Representatives. I am confident that I have received a well-rounded education that will serve me well in all my future endeavors."
—Anya Villatoro, Class of 2008, Political Science
"I felt that the Department of Political Science and International Studies was able to provide me with a comprehensive background on world politics while offering opportunities to create courses centered around country-specific interests. The Political Sciences/International Studies faculty take a personal interest in each student's education and give them the tools and feedback they need in order to succeed in their field of study."
—Stephanie Morse, Class of 2008, International Studies
