Undergraduate students in Political Science will take classes that range from large introductory lectures to intimate, discussion-driven seminars. The flexibility our major offers allows students to pursue other areas of interest to complement their Political Science studies, including research, internships, and study abroad to name a few.

We also have a robust set of Advanced Programs for distinguished senior Political Science majors interested in writing and researching an original thesis.
