Accelerated Program

The BS program in political science is useful for students who are looking for careers that require analytical thinking and quantitative skills.

It offers a variety of courses and opportunities to study politics and public policy at the local, national and global levels. The program provides students with the tools and skills necessary to link theory with real-world problems and issues. By providing experience with the analysis of political statistics, this degree program acquaints students with quantitative application skills. These skills are useful in graduate studies in political science, careers in public policy and other analytical positions in or related to government and politics.

Students currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Science program in political science may not pursue a concurrent degree with the Bachelor of Science in politics and the economy due to the high level of overlap in curriculum. Students should speak with their academic advisor regarding any further questions.
