Students are advised to take POLI 130 and POLI 150 as first-years, and POLI 200 and SSCI 224 as sophomores.

In addition, all majors must complete six POLI courses at or above the 200 level. Students may elect to focus on a particular area of political science (international affairs, American politics, or policy/public administration). Students may do this informally and students should consult with their advisors concerning the construction of an appropriate curriculum for completion of the major.

Students are encouraged to attend the Washington Semester, Washington Media Institute and/or study abroad.

Please visit the Center for Global Engagement website for more information on all these programs.

*Trial Advocacy and Mock Trial may be repeated for credit toward general course credits, but may not be repeated for credit toward the major, minors, or the American Politics concentration. Combining the 2 credits each from POLI 248 and POLI 249 will count as one of the six courses necessary for the major.
