A Minimum of Nine Units in Political Science, Including:
One elective one-unit political science course taken at the 200- or 300-level.
All courses for the major must be taken for a numerical grade, except those offered only on a credit/no credit basis. In order for a course to count for the political science major, the student must earn at least a 2.0 in the course.
Political science majors are strongly encouraged to achieve basic competency in statistics (MATH 209 is appropriate) and at least one foreign language.
It is expected that seven of the nine units in political science will be taken at Albion College. Other arrangements can be made for bona fide transfer students and students in approved off-campus programs. Exceptions are at the discretion of the department chair after consultation with other faculty members in the department.
