Employer Relations in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts & Sciences works with the Career Development Center to connect studnents with career opportunities and events. Students can learn about career communities, see where Fulbright students are interning, and find jobs, internships, and events of interest to them. 

The Volunteer Action Center now offers GivePulse, a new Volunteer Management system available to students, staff, faculty, and community members. GivePulse is a comprehensive volunteer platform that will allow users to locate volunteer opportunities on campus and around the Northwest Arkansas community. Users can log their service hours and have them verified by volunteer supervisors; logging service hours through GivePulse will automatically keep track and enter you into any qualifying awards, such as the President's Volunteer Service Award and the Chancellor's Community Service Award. 

 

Areas of Study

American Politics

AMERICAN POLITICS

American Politics examines the structure and dynamics of mass behavior, public opinion and governmental institutions. It further looks at their interrelationships and their role in the political and policy process. Specifically, it studies national government institutions such as the presidency, Congress, the bureaucracy, courts, subnational governments and the federal system. Organizations such as parties, interest groups and social movements are also part of this field. Specific attention is directed to the political behavior of parties, interest groups and social movements and their influence on these institutions and public policy.

PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION

PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION

Public administration, and especially the Masters of Public Administration (M.P.A.), prepares people who pursue public service careers. These degree programs develop the skills and techniques used by leaders and managers to implement policies, projects, and programs that resolve important societal problems while addressing organizational, human resource, and budgetary challenges. Graduates work in a wide variety of public service fields and in all levels of government (federal, state, local, and regional), in nonprofits, as well as in the international arena, and in the private sector.

 
 
COMPARATIVE POLITICS

COMPARATIVE POLITICS

Comparative politics focuses on some of the same issues as International Relations, but tends to examine them more within regional contexts. Typically, faculty will focus on Asia, western or eastern Europe, Latin America, or the Middle East.
