Hampden-Sydney's Government and Foreign Affairs department is one of only "two or three others like it in the United States," according to the National Review guide to the top 50 liberal arts colleges in the country. Labeled "politically astute" by The Princeton Review, students study contemporary political problems grounded in the history of political thought. A major is an excellent foundation for legal study or positions in local, state, or federal government.

"When I was Student Body President at Hampden-Sydney, the alumni who were members of the Virginia Legislature invited me to go with them to the ceremonial opening of that year's session at Jamestown, in recognition of Virginia's 400th anniversary. It was almost more exciting than the time I spent working at the White House- which is an excellent example, by the way, of the kind of internships Hampden-Sydney students can get."
