Political Science

"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must…undergo the fatigues of supporting it."
♦Thomas Paine

The Political Science pathway at Gordon State provides a solid foundation for pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Political Science at another institution. This pathway leads toward a general understanding of the complex factors that influence our government and the processes which determine political decisions, activity, and behavior.  


"Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest."
♦Denis Diderot
