The requirements for a major in Political Science are:

- Nine Political Science courses, including:
- two 150-level courses, which may be taken in any order (no more than two 150-level classes may be counted toward a major)
- two 200-level courses
- four courses at the 300 or 400 level
- one seminar

These courses must fulfill distribution requirements among the department's three subfields-Politics and Government, Theory, and International Relations-as listed in the catalog:

- The four courses at the 150 and 200 level must include at least one course in each of the three subfields
- The courses at the 300 level and above (four 300- or 400-level courses and one seminar) must also include at least one course in each of the three subfields; the seminar can fulfill a subfield requirement

- Courses at the 300 level and above will ordinarily require a
150- or 200-level course as a prerequisite.

- Courses in which a grade below "C" is received cannot
be counted toward the major.

- Courses taken elsewhere for concentration credit *must* be
approved in advance.
