Politics are a source of debate in our society, thanks to the recent elections. Many experts strive to explain political behavior and the actions of the government. Students looking to pursue a career in government or politics would do well to take political science courses. To teach these classes to Michigan students, prospective educators are required to pass the MTTC Political Science Exam.

For the test, you will be required to know about political science terms, types of government, research and analysis, principles of government, values of democracy, landmark court decisions, the U.S. legal system, functions and operation of the federal government, functions of state and local governments in Michigan, international relations, U.S. foreign policy, political parties, U.S. electoral system, U.S. citizenship, relationship between history and political science, relationship between geography and political science, relationship between economics and political science, and public policy.
