Political Department


Political Science

With unique features such as a student reference library, a Model United Nations office, and the Political Awareness Society, there are many opportunities for involvement within the Department. Students and faculty are also responsible for bringing various speakers to campus. The Department also has a chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, a national Political Science honor society


A unique feature of the Department is the Upper Ohio Valley Collection of historical documents and material, a private collection which was donated to the College. Its main emphasis is on the history of the Upper Ohio Valley in the Nineteenth Century. Another special feature is a semester in Washington, D.C. at American University. While taking classes, students also spend time working for the Smithsonian Institution or with various congressmen in our nation's capital. In addition, a junior or senior is selected each year for a one-week internship with the West Virginia Legislature in Charleston, the state capital. Although internships are not required as part of the History curriculum, many students have completed work with state government agencies, area law firms, or with archival centers both on and off-campus
