This study helped to prepare her for her graduate studies at Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi to conduct biodiesel research with Dr. Paul Zimba. She will graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Chemistry and Chemistry, magna cum laude, with minors in Economics and Mathematics, graduating as part of the Honors Society.

Political Science

Is one of a number of liberal arts majors that prepare students for a broad range of career opportunities.

Political science is the systematic study of government, politics and public policy.

Specialized Education

Political science is one of a number of liberal arts majors that prepare students for a broad range of career opportunities. Political science majors choose one of three tracks or concentrations: general political science, pre-law, or public administration. Each concentration provides a combination of knowledge and skills especially appropriate for those with particular career goals. However, choosing one concentration over the others does not limit you to a particular career path — each of the tracks provides a solid grounding in political science and a broad liberal arts background.

General education requirements and sufficient elective credits must be completed so that at least 124 semester credits have been earned.
