The Bachelor of Science in Public Administration prepares the student for a career in local, state, or national governments as well as nonprofit organizations. Like the political science major, Public Administration requires a minor. Majors are required to intern at a government agency on the local, state, or national level or at a nonprofit organization.
All political science majors wishing to apply for advanced standing must have completed the General Education requirement for political science (PolS 34-102).
Graduating seniors are expected to take the ACAT, Political Science exam as part of the University's exit assessment program. Students interested in Graduate School should take the GRE exam; those interested in law school should take the LSAT. (A practice LSAT is available within the department.)
