Robertson School of Government

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

Can you envision yourself working at the White House or Capitol Hill, as a city manager or nonprofit executive director, or in some other form of public service? We prepare people just like you for careers in public service, both in and out of government.

Our mission is to train leaders who 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. To accomplish this, we allow students to transfer up to 90 credit hours to finish strong here at Regent University.

Regent University School of Government graduates serve in strategic positions in: the White House, Capitol Hill, the Departments of State, Justice and Homeland Security, city councils and state legislatures, NGOs, think tanks, universities, and the military.

Are you called to join the ranks of our alumni who are Christian leaders changing the world?
