Degree Program:

  • Associate of Arts Degree – 62 Credit Hours

Degree & Course Work Details:

Political science is the study of the theory and practice of government and politics. Students of politics describe and analyze political systems and behavior. Baccalaureate programs offer courses in areas such as public administration, public law, international relations, comparative politics, political behavior, political philosophy, and U. S. government. Students interested in political science as a transfer major are encouraged to complete the Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree prior to transfer.

These course recommendations are intended for students who are undecided about a transfer school. Students who have selected a transfer school should consult the catalog of that school and an academic advisor for requirements appropriate to the first two years of study. College catalogs and transfer guides for many four-year colleges are available through Career Services.
