Honors in Political Science

Students with at least 15 completed hours in Political Science courses with a minimum 3.50 GPA in those courses may apply to the Department’s Honors Program.  To graduate with Honors in Political Science, students must successfully complete an independent research project in PSC 486 Honors Closing Seminar.  Students are also able to take a graduate-level course in Political Science as an elective.  (Please be aware that any graduate-level course counted toward credit in a student’s undergraduate degree cannot later be counted toward a graduate degree.)

To be considered for the Department’s Honors Program, students must email the Application For Honors Form to the Chair of the Political Science Department by the end of the fall semester preceding their senior seminar.
