Can you express yourself well? Can you eloquently explain what your opponent is saying? Can you connect ideas that have been molded throughout history and filter them through different civilizations? These challenges—and many more—make studying political science at Spring Hill College fascinating and fun.

My senior seminar with Dr. Harding was superb. I chose to research cybernetic warfare and its repercussions on the relations between Beijing and Washington. Throughout my time at SHC, I particularly enjoyed studying the finesse of the American legislative processes and the internal politics of our nation’s capital. Every decision made has a ripple effect in a giant machine powered by individual cogs.
