To foster both breadth and depth of knowledge, the department has designed a special core curriculum for politics and government majors. Among the total of at least 10 departmental courses, students select at least one from each of four areas: American politics, international relations, comparative politics, and political theory. Working closely with a faculty advisor, the student selects in each area the courses best suited to his or her particular interests and career goals. The department offers a five-course minor as well.
