Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Government with an Emphasis in American Government & Politics Degree Overview
Online Government Degree Overview
The United States government is one of the longest and perhaps most successful democratic forms of governance in the world. Far from perfect, the longevity and success of American government is due in part to the genius of its founding and brilliance of its institutions. The American Government & Politics online learning degree investigates the origin, creation and historical development of the U.S. constitutional institutions as well as their contemporary existence. Attention is given to the public policy process and bureaucratic politics and their relation to the national government. This emphasis befits online degree students interested in postgraduate education in American government and political science as well as in careers in local, state or national government, the private sector, journalism and media, the non-profit industry and many others.
This online degree is also available to undergraduate students enrolling in government classes at our university campus in Virginia Beach.
