Major Declaration

Before signing major declaration forms, we want to be sure that students understand what the political science major has to offer, how it fits with students’ academic and career goals, what the major requirements are, and how students can successfully meet those requirements. You have two options for doing this:

  1. You can attend one of our Major Declaration Events scheduled monthly each semester (dates/times will be shared on Social Sciences listserve, through the OAA listserve, in POLI courses, or you can contact the major advisor for details).
  2. You can schedule a meeting with the Political Science major advisor.
