Many students enroll in political science classes at Richland to broaden their knowledge of politics. In a major sense, politics is the activity by which the framework of human life is sustained in all nations throughout  the world. At Richland both the theory and the practice of politics are investigated, inviting students to engage their minds to discover their own perception of political reality . Students will also have the opportunity to become involved in field research during major election years participating in actual political campaigns working with candidates of their choice.
