Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 2000

Academics Rating

NCCU political Science program was a good program because the classes were small, which was important to me. The professors made sure that the students were aware of the current national and local public policies as well as history. Writing and research made for a heavy workload but paid off during internships and job interviews.
