Information on Political Science
Though the practice of politics dates back far into history during the times of the ancient Greeks, the study of politics as a science is relatively new. Political science is the examination of our political processes, the institutions involved, and the qualitative investigation of organizational behavior.
The classes offered in Political Science at CGCC will help students to learn about the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Arizona; historical backgrounds and governing principals of the government of the United States; and how politics and economics play a role in international relationships and dependencies.
Political scientists learn how to systematically approach issues within the scope of political science including domestic, international, and comparative politics. Students with backgrounds in political science may prepare for careers in areas such as law, college and university teaching, government service, foreign career service and 'politics' in general.
