Study the theory and practice of government skills
Students of politics describe and analyze political systems and behavior. Bachelor’s programs offer courses in 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 of Arts degree before transfer.

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.

Upon completion of this program, you will be well-prepared to transfer to a four-year university and pursue a bachelor's degree in political science or a related field. You will also have the skills and knowledge to pursue a career in government, law, public policy, or other fields that require a strong understanding of politics.
