Prospective Majors

The major in politics and international affairs entails taking classes in American politics, comparative politics, international relations, and political theory. No more than one class in each of the four subfields is required.

If you are interested in majoring in politics and international affairs, we encourage you to enroll in two of the introductory classes in the fields listed above during your first and second year in College.

Important: Beginning in Spring 2015 majors will be required to take Math 109. Thus, in choosing your Division V requirements, you should be sure to take this class during your first two years in College.

In the spring semester of your sophomore year, you will declare your major. Once you have done so, you can preregister for classes in our department. For further information about the major, please click here.
