We promote three career tracks: pre-law, public administration, and political leadership. Our coursework is directed toward these goals. Pre-law students have courses in constitutional law and internships in legal offices and other sites. Public Administration students have the opportunity to work in practicums with local and state offices. Political leadership students complete internships in Washington DC, Topeka, and elsewhere, and these opportunities are available to other students as well. Political leadership students may also apply to our accelerated Master’s program, a partnership with another university.
