The political science program is designed to prepare students for transfer to a political science program at a four-year institution. Following a four-year degree, students may also pursue graduate degrees in law, international business communications, political science, public administration, and management.

What can I do with this concentration?

Academic Options: This program has been designed to match as closely as possible the first two years of a political science degree at the University of Arizona. Students planning to transfer to another university should meet with an advisor to complete a transfer plan.
