NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - Five Westminster College political science alumni discussed the significance of the 2012 elections in a panel in February that was open to the entire Westminster campus. Each alumnus was involved in the elections, from working on a campaign to covering the elections for the media.
The following alumni participated in the panel:
"The event brought together five young alumni of great accomplishment who played important roles in the 2012 election campaigns. It demonstrated the quality of our younger political science alumni, and the variety of ways political science majors can make a difference in politics, and do so very soon after graduation," said Dr. Edward S. Cohen, associate professor of political science at Westminster College, and chair of the Department of Political Science and Sociology.
The program in political science is designed to provide the student with knowledge of political theory, of the American political system, of the political systems of other areas of the world, and of international politics and institutions. The political science program prepares students for careers in government service, teaching, law, and related professional and graduate study. It also offers electives in support of major programs in other disciplines.
