The importance of studying politics today

Why did you become a political science major?  What is the importance of studying politics today?   How do you explain the major and its role in society?

 Professor emeritus, Ronald Schmidt, shared his inspiring reflections in a talk to a group of students at Davidson College‚Äôs Pi Sigma Alpha initiation ceremony.

 The talk was then published by the American Political Science Association in one of its top journals: PS: Political Science & Politics. 

 It is a great read for all students of politics!
