The degree programs in political science provide 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 in research methodology and undertake a discipline-related observational experience. The curriculum is structured to provide students with a background appropriate for a pre-law school experience. Program graduates have skills and competencies necessary for entry into graduate programs or to pursue career opportunities in law-related fields, public administration, government, or teaching government and politics at the secondary school level.
NOTE: The Bachelor of Arts degree requires a minor in another field.
