The Bachelor of Aarts/Bachelor of Science in Political Science is not career specific. Political Science graduates go to law school or to graduate school for further study in political science. Other career possibilities include government employment, business, teaching, and politics. Political science graduates are required to be knowledgeable about major paradigms in political theory, American politics, comparative politics, international relations, and research methods. The most important competencies are the ability to think clearly and critically, and to engage in effective communication.

In addition to fulfilling these requirements, students majoring Political Science must submit a portfolio of their work in Political Science courses and complete a survey on their experiences in the program. Details may be found on the department’s website.
While some courses are included more than once in the list of required courses for the first or second major, a particular course may NOT be used to satisfy more than one requirement.
