Political Science

The bachelor's degree in Political Science provides students with a foundation in American and non-American politics through rigorous coursework across seven areas of political science: American national government, American state and local government, public policy, constitutional law, public administration, international relations, and foreign policy. In addition, students are provided a foundation on research methodology and undertake a discipline-related observational experience. The curriculum is structured to provide students with a background appropriate for a prelaw school experience. Program graduates have the skills and competencies necessary for entry into a graduate program in Public Administration, or pursue career opportunities in law-related fields, public administration, or teaching government and politics at the secondary school level.

*Note: The Bachelor of Art degree requires a minor in another field.
