At OBU, we understand that God has blessed you with a desire to improve your state and national communities. Our program and division faculty are committed to shaping your future, so you can shape the future for others. In politics, we have strong relationships with those in governmental service who want to invest in you, as others did for them. Add to that our strong emphasis on preparing you for graduate school level writing, with most classes including built-in review of your work for feedback before final submission.
Benefits of OBU Politics Program
Politics is the study of coercion—how it works and when it is morally acceptable. We offer you a non-partisan but integrally Christian class environment. The curriculum covers many of the most controversial questions in American politics, but without an expectation that students will conform to either a “politically correct” or “reactionary” perspective.
