Major in Political Science

Students learn about political processes, governance, and theories of political life while gaining critical knowledge of political and legal systems that shape society. Our majors develop skills to make a tangible impact on the everyday lives of the people and places in their community and beyond.

Students chose our major because of the exciting and relevant course content, the quality of teaching, academic freedoms, and educational opportunities offered both inside and outside the classroom. Individual courses are demanding, but the major requires only a modest number of credits, allowing students more flexibility.

Students can plan/track degree progress using Program Sheet & Academic Plan and STAR Degree Check.
