"Before taking my first class within the ETSU Political Science Department, I was unsure of my future in political science. Through taking a variety of courses and in my interactions with professors, I became encouraged and excited about pursuing political science. The faculty in the Department are prepared to assist students inside and outside of the classroom. Not only did I receive excellent instruction in each of my courses, I was also met with advice and encouragement from my professors. Because of the faculty in this department, I decided to pursue a PhD in political science and am excited about what my future holds"

“My experience as a Political Science student at ETSU was built around the extent of individual care, flexibility, and diversity of experience that faculty brought to the table. Throughout my program, professors were always willing to go the extra mile whether that was providing honors curriculum, advising thesis work, or helping navigate career options. I could not have asked for more than the lifelong friendships made here and the exceptionally rewarding academic experience I received.”

"I have always felt that my professors in political science and international affairs have gone beyond the calling of the classroom to support me in my short-term and long-term academic goals. Whether it is a simple recommendation letter, discussing future career opportunities, or offering independent studies for advanced learning in special topics, political science faculty at ETSU have helped me grow as both an academic and a person. I would encourage any undecided students who have a heart for service, a passion for policy, or even a general curiosity about power to consider majoring in political science or international affairs."
