Advising Plan

This is a sample degree plan for the politics major. All students must consult with an advisor in making course selections that meet their individual needs. We strongly encourage students to complete at least one full semester abroad; students who study abroad for a semester typically do it sometime between the spring semester of their second year and the fall semester of their senior year.
