American Politics


American Politics, B.A. in Political Studies

Majoring in Political Studies at the Master’s University equips believers not only for compelling careers in law, politics, or business but also for responsible citizenship. Through a biblical framework, professors teach small classes on the theory and philosophy of civilizations. This major also allows students to participate in a semester-long internship in Washington, D.C., allowing them a front-row seat to the inner workings of the government and opportunities for networking. Because justice, law, and government originate with God, it is best to study God’s purpose for those institutions at an institution where the Bible is preached without shame and compromise.

Semester-long internship in Washington D.C

The Department of History & Political Studies is designed to help all students develop an understanding of the complex factors that have produced the civilizations of the present and also aid students in becoming responsible Christian citizens. Primarily because of our emphasis on systematic research and analysis, students receive instruction in preparing for careers in law, education, business, government service, public relations, or library work, as well as graduate study in law, theology, history, or political science.

The department acknowledges that God is sovereign in human affairs of the past, present, and future. With that foundational truth, students are aided in developing Christian philosophies of history and politics as parts of an overarching biblical worldview. Every course should help students integrate the Christian faith and the academic fields.
