Political Science for Transfer, AA-T


Since exposure to other political systems and ideas is vital in this increasingly interdependent world, students of all interests and backgrounds will find political science courses relevant and of value. The political science curriculum includes both required and elective courses appropriate for a general liberal arts education and for the major in political science. The core course, American Government, meets the general education requirement in American Institutions and lays a broad analytical framework that may be employed in examining political issues. Other courses in the curriculum meet general education requirements in the social sciences. Most social, economic and moral issues have political implications; and governmental policy affects most aspects of daily life. Political science is an excellent liberal arts major for students interested in learning how groups of people govern themselves; how policies are made; and how we can improve our government policies at the local, state, national, and international levels. Those interested in American politics, international affairs, critical issues such as civil rights, health care, the environment and the deficit should consider this course of study.

About This Roadmap: 

Below is a suggested major roadmap from discipline experts. This roadmap, based on IVC’s 2018-2019 course catalog, will give you an idea of the suggested order of classes you need to take to complete this degree at IVC; however, please make sure to meet with an IVC counselor to personalize your My Academic Plan (MAP) and verify courses according to the catalog year appropriate to your enrollment. In addition, students who plan on transferring to a university should speak with a counselor to review courses needed, as major course requirements for transfer may be different from the suggested list.
