Political science studies what is possible for humankind, and the public processes and institutions through which we seek to realize those possibilities. Thus, political science is the study of ends: happiness, freedom, prosperity, security; and political science is also the study of means: public law and authority, policy-making and administration, interest groups and political parties, political power and compromise, political action and public participation, political leadership and public opinion.

UCFV offers a minor in Applied Ethical and Political Philosophy as part of the Bachelor of Arts program.
