Political Science

The Associates of Arts degree with a field of study in Political Science is designated for students planning to transfer to a baccalaureate degree in Political Science or related field at four-year institutions. The curriculum includes general academic courses and electives that enable students who intend to major in Political Science, Public Affairs, or Public Administration to transfer to four-year institutions.

Instruction will require academic cooperative courses to give students "hands-on" experiences in government functions. The Government program has a foreign language requirement attached to it that will complete most four-year institution requirements. Completing a Government program can expand opportunities in teaching, law school, and other related areas of public policy.
