The objective of the political science program is focused on the study of politics, governments, governmental systems, and the making of public policy. The B.A. degree is offered to better prepare the citizen to exercise political responsibilities and to ground the student for subsequent functioning in the public political system. The major is also structured to prepare the student for post-graduate study in political science; in professional schools of law, journalism, international relations, and public administration; and in post-graduate work leading to specialized careers in research and teaching. (All Political Science Majors are required to take an Oral and Written Exam before graduation. Three papers must be in students’ departmental files.)
