Careers in Political Science
Welcome to the Albright College
Political Science Department

Conflict, rights, the environment, terrorism, and globalization are just a few of the most pressing issues confronting our world today. Political science students at Albright College explore these issues and more through courses, internships, and in a range of extracurricular experiences. We cover such areas as pre-law, U.S. government on all levels, and international politics. We give students the skills they need to be successful in law, public service, business, the nonprofit world, diplomacy, and many other areas in their careers and as active, engaged citizens in the 21st century.


  • An articulation agreement between Albright College and the University of Delaware offers Albright graduates streamlined admission to select master’s programs in Delaware’s School of Public Policy and Administration. Under the terms of the agreement, qualifying Albright undergraduates receive conditional acceptance prior to completion of their baccalaureate degree.

  • Albright’s Mark Oleszek, Ph.D., assistant professor of political science, lent his expertise earlier this year at a conference to help the 51 newly-elected members of the U.S. House of Representatives get acquainted with the challenges facing the country and acclimated to legislative procedures. Oleszek provided evaluation assistance for the conference in Williamsburg, Va., in January.
