The department offers one major and one minor:
- Bachelor of Arts, Political Science major
- Minor in Political Science
Please reference the 2019-2020 Undergraduate Catalog for course requirements specific to the Political Science Department major and minor.
- Political Science courses invite students to examine political thought and systems past and present.
- A major or minor in political science provides an enduring political education for citizens, a solid basis for graduate work, and a fine background for the study of law, the teaching or practice of politics and social and economic organization, and change.
- We encourage majors to enter politics in our public affairs internships and other forms of experiential learning as well as in pursuing their own political interests and passions.
