Bachelor of Science Degree with a Major in Political Science

General

Program Description

Similar to the B.A., this B.S. program has a strong major, and opportunity for a minor, but it offers a wider elective option through the elimination of the foreign language requirement. It is also an appropriate preparation for graduate school and especially for law school. It provides the background for careers which need the informed perspective of a liberal arts degree (as journalism, public relations, etc.). It is a more direct preparation for career fields which draw more directly on the major field (as legislative aide, political action, community service, etc.). Students develop writing and analytical skills useful in business and professional careers. For more information, please see the Curriculum Sheets and Requirements for the B.S. in Political Science.  This degree requires completion of a minor or an approved certificate program.
