Political Science, B.A. (PLSAL)
About the Major
The Political Science major provides students with a general education in the liberal arts and an introduction to the complexities of the political process. The major offers students the opportunity to develop an advanced understanding of American politics, politics of other nations, and political theory. The major is designed to offer students maximum flexibility when selecting classes. Courses transferred from your study abroad experience may possibly be used either in the advanced courses and related are of the major. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Undergraduate Advisors in the department.
Courses in political science emphasize reading, interpreting, assessing, formulating, and communicating complex arguments about real-world topics. Since the arguments may range from the abstract and philosophical to the empirical and statistical, this minor presents an excellent opportunity to apply and sharpen skills.
