Whether exploring different ways to structure society or which shade of blue best captures the sky, creating new ways of looking at the world is something Cal Lutheran students do daily in 37 majors and 31 minors. In political science courses, professors challenge students to examine government and society, nurturing a commitment to civic involvement and looking beyond simple analysis of “red” vs. “blue.” A wide view of colors also comes into play among artists at CLU as they train with faculty members known nationally and around the world. Both majors offer unique ways for students to apply what they’re learning to the larger world. Politically minded students can intern with CLU’s Washington, D.C., program, while arts students regularly exhibit in the Kwan Fong Gallery where the entire community can experience their creative expression.

“The CLU political science degree is a form of training, not just for working in politics but for becoming active participants in a democratic society and citizens working for social justice.”
