Make sure that you are familiar with the overall BA requirements and the Political Science program requirements, paying particular attention to the Political Science core courses and other requirements of the Major, Minor or Area of Concentration.

If you would like further information about the Political Science program, please consult our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page or contact a Political Science Advisor.

When you are ready to register for courses make sure that you have the correct course number and make sure that you are familiar with the University’s regulations and procedures, particularly for dropping and adding courses. As you begin to think about your third and fourth years in the program make a note of what prerequisite courses you will need for courses at the third and fourth year that look interesting to you.

Be as prepared and organized as possible to give yourself the best opportunity to succeed in your courses and in the program generally.
