What makes a political science degree from LaGrange so unique?
In today's world, informed, well-researched decisions must be made every minute. LaGrange Political Science majors are taught to conduct research that helps organizations guide those decisions, not only as part of the curriculum, but also as a public service to the community.
Students cooperate in developing research projects for Servant-Leadership partners of the College. They design research for community organizations, neighborhood associations and local governments. They then gather the information, analyze the data, and present results that help answer vital questions for their clients. As an added bonus, many of these projects have formed the basis for presentations by student researchers at national and regional research conventions. Some have been accepted for publication in scholarly journals as well.
