The new School of Politics, Society, Justice, and Public Service is home to majors, minors, and certificates in Political Science, Public Administration, Nonprofit Leadership, Social Work, and Sociology, including concentrations in Social & Criminal Justice and Youth Studies.

This year, we have courses addressing contemporary social and political issues such as abortion (SOC 410), LGBTQ discrimination (SOC 204), racism (SOC 323), criminal law (PSC 365), constitutional law (PSC 422), and advocacy & activism (SOC/SWK 318). Our students participate in internships and pursue careers at local organizations such Mid Michigan Big Brother Big Sister and Isabella County Child Advocacy Center, state agencies, federal government offices, international aid groups, and many nonprofit and advocacy organizations. Many of our students are involved in research with faculty, and many alumni have careers as professors and researchers.
