The twin missions of the Politics program of University of Dallas are to teach students to examine politics from the perspective of political philosophy and to educate its students for leadership in public affairs.


Combine the study of the classics of Western political thought with rigorous exploration of American politics and international affairs. 

Prepare for a career in law, journalism, business, government, or teaching through a concentrated course of study in political philosophy and contemporary politics. Develop and solidify your capacity for truly independent and rigorous thinking about political, social, and moral questions.

The graduate curriculum of the Politics program of University of Dallas ranges from the Greek polis through the great Catholic thinkers of the Middle Ages to the politics of contemporary liberal democracies. Master the most rewarding political works of the Western tradition and the American experiment in self-government while considering the great themes and issues of political thought and experience: justice, equality, liberty, morality, religion, and human nature. 

Complete the program at your own pace.

The Politics program is designed to enable the student to complete its requirements in a year of full-time study if he so desires. Summer school courses are sometimes offered and may be of particular interest to part-time students.
