American Politics


The American Politics emphasis, B.A. in Political Studies 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. We teach that God is sovereign in human affairs of the past, present, and future. 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.

Students may 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. Students explore the complex factors that have produced the civilizations of the present, and engage in systematic research and analysis, and 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. Students are mentored to develop Christian philosophies of history and politics as parts of an overarching biblical worldview.
