Undergraduate students looking to pursue an advanced program of study and original research within Political Science have the option to apply for either our Honors Program or our four-year BA/MA program. More information on these programs can be found below.

For both programs, students work with a faculty member in Political Science to pursue research in an area of their choosing within the discipline. We encourage students interested in these programs to reach out to the PO advisor or to the Director of the programs early on in their academic careers.
