Degree Requirements

Please reference the 2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalogue for course requirements specific to the Political Science 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.
