Students seeking a bachelor’s degree in the following major must complete: (1) degree requirements for a Bachelor of Arts or Science degree and (2) University Studies requirements (refer to those sections of this catalog). In addition, courses in the major must be completed as shown below. No Political Science course grade lower than “C” will count toward a major, second major, or minor.
