The broad ranging and centuries-old study of political science has prepared individuals with community, national, and international civil aspirations. In this tradition, American Public University students can earn a respected Bachelor of Arts in Political Science while learning from scholar practitioners, many who are published authors and leaders in the discipline. The Bachelor of Arts in Political Science also serves as a foundational liberal arts degree and is a popular choice for pre-law scholars who aspire to further their education in a Juris Doctorate program.
The curriculum at American Public University is facilitated entirely online. This unique feature allows motivated scholars the ability to balance a quality education with their busy schedules. The program also emphasizes enhanced critical-thinking, research and communication skills, which are universal and valuable in a variety of management or leadership capacities. Students learn from experienced instructors, many who are leaders in government, private industry and are actively involved in the national or international political systems.
Students also join American Public University's expansive network of lifelong learners and like-minded professionals. Many students are actively involved outside the online classroom through affiliated groups and organizations such as the Golden Key International Honour Society and online social communities.
