Students in the BA degree are required to take a breadth of courses in both the general education and departmental requirements. BA students are also required to select a minor. In addition to their introductory courses in Political Science, BA majors are required to take at least one upper-level course in each of the core subfields of Political Science (American Politics, Comparative Politics, International Relations, Political Theory and Public Policy/Public Administration). See the BA major check sheet for the list of courses.
