Department of Political Science and International Studies

Welcome to the Web page for SUNY Brockport's exciting Department of Political Science and International Studies! Our department is unique in that it combines two majors: political science—with it's long and distinguished legacy at SUNY Brockport—and  international studies, one of the most rapidly growing new majors in the SUNY system. Brockport political science graduates are found in a wide range of outstanding careers—law, business and commerce, politics, trade associations and professional societies, and a host of other fields. International studies graduates typically enter a broad range of professions associated with international affairs, including international trade, foreign policy and diplomacy. Both programs offer solid preparation for teaching careers at all levels. 

We encourage our students to match academic course work with training and experiences that will position them for multiple options in the job market. Such experiences include study abroad programs to perfect foreign language facilities and internships at  the local, regional, national and international level. As SUNY's "Jewel in the Crown" in overseas programs, we offer our students a wide range of overseas study possibilities. You may also study in Washington, DC, through our Internship Program—the premier Washington, DC-based program of its type. Our Washington Semester students gain professional experience in the US Congress, Supreme Court, Attorney General's Office, State Department and other government agencies. Many go from there into full-time employment or on to graduate school.
