Students seeking to challenge themselves should take advantage of the Political Science Department’s honors program and its advanced educational opportunities. Motivated students seeking valuable experience toward private sector and government employment or toward advanced study at the graduate level will find the honors program to be helpful in their pursuits. Each student in the program is provided special opportunities to enroll in advanced seminars designed for honors candidates, write an honors thesis with a Political Science faculty member of their choosing, and participate in independent readings modeled on the tutorial system of Oxford and Cambridge Universities.
The Honors Program runs two seminars, one in the Fall and one in the Spring. Students should seek faculty sponsorship for their Honors Thesis only.
All students with a “B” average (3.0) overall and in Political Science are encouraged to contact a Political Science professor about admission to the honors program, click here for application (PDF).
