Welcome to Regent University's Robertson School of Government, where students look first when beginning their educational journeys in political science and government-related graduate programs in the Mid-Atlantic.

Can you envision yourself working at the White House, Capitol Hill or in some other form of public service? We prepare people just like you for careers in public service and administration. Our mission is to train leaders who desire to strengthen the ethical and moral foundation of Judeo-Christian principles in government, and who are called to preserve individual freedom, representative democracy and constitutional government.
