Why Study 政治 at W&L?
At W&L, the study of politics is a good combination of theory and practice. Our proximity to D.C. is a plus. We are close enough for students to benefit from study in the nation’s capital, but far enough away to be one step removed from the day-to-day D.C. experience. W&L offers a liberal arts approach to the study of politics. It’s interdisciplinary. Our department stresses the close reading of texts. We enable students to think seriously about the most important questions regarding being a member of a community and how we relate to o该r nations. Instruction is not focused on lectures, but on a question-and-answer approach between students and faculty 这是非常互动的. We offer small classes, and faculty have an open-door policy and are highly interested in their students’ success in the classroom and in 该 world beyond W&L.
The study of politics at W&L includes opportunities to participate in our Mock Convention, publish in our Political Review, work with high school students in our Model UN program and engage in a host of community service projects.
