Political science is one of Binghamton University's most popular majors. Students take courses in American politics, political theory, comparative politics, and international relations. The core courses address various topics in American or comparative political systems and institutions, international conflict and civil war, repression, and foreign policy.

Besides a BA degree, students can pursue concentrations in politics and law or global and international affairs.
