Studying political science at Calvin

Political science at Calvin College goes beyond red and blue, Republican and Democrat, to give you a new way of seeing how systems of power work—and how they should work.

Professor Stevenson with political science majorsProfessors work to integrate faith and learning in the classroom in a way that doesn't simply defend Christian faith and values from secular perspectives. You will also be challenged to encounter the complex world of politics as a whole, carefully considering how faith can impact institutions and policy in a way that promotes justice throughout society.

What's more, professors strive to impart the kind of wisdom and understanding that gets you beyond the classroom and on your way to serving God and your community.
