Bachelor of Arts in Politics

Politics majors must complete a minimum of 33 credit hours of politics coursework plus an additional nine credit hours in upper-level courses in related fields: History, Sociology, Philosophy or Economics.

Students can meet the related fields requirement in other appropriate disciplines or with a group of classes that combine disciplines after discussion with, and approval from, their adviser.

For graduation, Politics majors must have at least a 2.00 cumulative GPA in all politics courses (including those beyond the 33-hour requirement) as well as in the related-field courses applied to the major.
