Broaden your knowledge and appreciation of politics, political thought, and governance in the political science program at UW-Platteville. You’ll learn more about yourself and your world as you prepare for a wide range of careers focused on public service, public policy, administration, law, business, and other areas.

Field trips to major American cities such as Washington DC, New York City, or New Orleans let you explore hands-on politics. Gain real-life skills through internships with elected state and national representatives, political campaigns, law firms, non-profit organizations, or governmental agencies. In partnership with The Washington Center, one semester-long internship with a federal agency in Washington DC is available each semester.
