Redefining the Classroom

Systematic study of government, politics and public policy

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.
