The emphasis in politics is designed for students who want maximum flexibility within their program of study or wish to create a particular specialization within political science, such as American government or political theory.
The accelerated Law Degree program offers the opportunity to cut out one year’s time and tuition in earning both a B.S. or B.A. in Political Science and a J.D. degree. The program, from start to finish, will take 6 years to complete instead of the normal seven. Students declare the Politics emphasis to complete the program.
While the politics emphasis gives students the opportunity to take courses in many different areas, the following are examples of regularly taught courses in the fields of American government, and political theory.
Parties and Elections
American Public Opinion
The U.S. Congress

Political Participation and Behavior
