Study political processes both in the U.S. and internationally while also learning how to effectively communicate within the world of politics.
Florida Southern College is the only private institution of higher education in the state of Florida to affiliate with The Washington Center.
With exposure to social science research methods, journalism practices, speech writing, and debate experience, political communication majors develop a strong set of marketable skills.
Project courses provide numerous opportunities for in-depth research. Our political communication majors present their work at professional conferences across the country.
In POS 2500 Law and the Courts, you’ll focus on reviewing and integrating the topics of the law and legal systems into the US, discussing procedures and behavior patterns within that system, and examining the impact of our legal system.

In the classroom, I not only teach theories of human communication, but also help students become better communicators. I start my courses by stating, 'It will take hard work to succeed, but I am working just as hard to be there for you. We build these ideas together. You will be great.' Students leave my class with a better understanding of themselves and with confidence to succeed in various forms of interpersonal relationships.
Political Communication sponsors Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political science honorary. We also have a Student Advisory Board, which provides student feedback regarding the major. Many of our majors are involved with the Young Republicans and the College Democrats.
Due to challenges associated with the pandemic, we have waived the requirement to submit a recommendation letter.
