The specific subfields of the discipline include the government and politics, comparative government and politics, international relations, Islamic law, political theory, public law, public administration, constitutional law, American foreign policy, public bureaucracy and the political process. Students majoring in the program have traditionally pursued careers in law, business, teaching, journalism, and government.
