Bachelor of Arts (BA)
The study of political science is designed to enable students to become familiar with theories of public values and patterns of national, regional, and international political systems. A political science major should complete a broad liberal arts program, which would maximize opportunities to study in related social science disciplines, as well as in various areas of humanities.
Students will understand the interrelationships of the subfields of political science, develop skills in analysis and critical thinking, and be able to apply research methods relevant to the discipline. Review an example 4-year plan.
To support your academic journey, a number of scholarships are available.
The Department of Political Science believes that students who participate in an internship during their course of study will enrich their college educational experience. To encourage students to participate in these opportunities, the Department offers academic credit for internships related to political science.
