Courses

The Department of Political Science offers about 40 different courses each fall and spring semester. A smaller number of courses are also offered during the May term and summer session.

Our department offers a multitude of classes in the subfields of political theory, international relations, American politics, and comparative government each semester. Students have the option to focus on one or two of these subfields or they may take classes in all four subfields and complete a more general major.  Whatever your area of interest, you will find several courses that match your interests and work well with your class schedule.

Faculty member Kathryn Pearson speaks on the breath of course material taught in political science.
