The Robertson School of Government is a unique place of study where students from across the nation come to be equipped for leadership and service in their respective fields. We believe you will find us unlike any other graduate program that exists today. Our foundation is built solidly upon these key principles.
Christian Foundation - The Robertson School of Government believes our Founding Fathers knew all too well that any attempt at governance without acknowledging God and morality was doomed to failure. Our students are exposed to a rigorous course of study that includes a strong foundation in the Judeo-Christian values which have made our nation great.
Outstanding Faculty - Our faculty are authors, former presidential appointees, respected practitioners in their fields, and hold academic credentials from leading universities. More importantly, they share a burning desire to impart the training, wisdom and skills needed for their students to be successful in their chosen careers. Our classes are small, and our faculty know each of their students.
State-of-the-Art Facilities - From the aesthetic beauty of the buildings to the latest technology incorporated into our classrooms, Regent University strives to make excellence a normal occurrence in everything we do.
Flexible Learning Options - Students can complete their degree completely online with no residency requirement. We make earning a graduate degree attainable, so working professionals and those with families can do so without disrupting their lives.
Special Speakers/Guest Lecturers - Our students are enriched throughout the year with opportunities to hear from leading political and cultural figures who have shaped history and policy. Past speakers have included: Al Gore, Newt Gingrich, Bob Dole, Barry Lynn, Wesley Clark, Ann Coulter, David Limbaugh, Paul Begala, Bill O'Reilly, and many others. Those on the right and left have sharpened our students and made them think through the critical issues of today.
Student Improvement in Critical Thinking and Writing - Our curriculum focuses on the importance of writing well and articulating one's position. Students will be challenged to improve their writing and communication skills, and ample opportunity will be given to do so throughout their course of study.
Internship Opportunities - Our faculty and staff work with students to help them find an internship right for their desired career field. Past internships have included: The Heritage Foundation, Virginia House of Delegates, the White House, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and state and local government agencies throughout the country.
