About Politics at LVC

At LVC, you can focus on political systems of the U.S., international politics, and government institutions while getting hands-on experience through internships and research with faculty.

Participate in a European Union simulation in Washington, D.C., intern with legislators in the state capital, and prepare for the LSAT and law school with guidance from our faculty pre-law advisor. Our graduates have found jobs with government agencies, international organizations, and policy-related groups—one even became Pennsylvania’s 46th Governor, the Hon. Thomas W. Corbett, Esq. '71.

Many have gone on to some of the nation’s finest graduate programs and law schools, including William & Mary, University of Pittsburgh, and St. John’s University.

Studying abroad in Spain really ignited my passion for living abroad and developing my understanding of the world. From that time, I knew my future would require linguistic diversity, international understanding, and business acumen.
