Undergraduate Courses

Our carefully structured undergraduate curriculum builds a foundation of knowledge about politics and political concepts in PO101 and PO102, and introduces political science’s various fields of study in our 200-level courses. You will move on to more advanced analyses in your 300-level courses and 400-level courses, which are often paired with simulations, applied projects and interactions with practitioners.

Your first step in registration should include a visit to the Course Registration Guide. Consider using the Visual Schedule Builder, a great tool for course selection; it will help you plan your week as well as provide course details such as instructor names, lecture/lab times, which you can then use to register. Review your program requirements to ensure you are on the right track.
