Undergraduate Program

Political Science involves the study of politics and government. The political science curriculum at Radford is intended to provide undergraduates with a broad background in the discipline within the broader context of a liberal education. The major and minor requirements in political science are intended to develop students’ analytical and communication skills as well as a knowledge of politics and government.

Given its objectives, the curriculum covers six areas corresponding with the subfields of modern political science:

  1. American politics;
  2. Public administration;
  3. Comparative politics;
  4. International relations;
  5. Methodology; and
  6. Political philosophy.

For students desiring to teach political science at the secondary level, the teacher licensure option is offered through the Bachelor of Science program for Social Science. Students may pursue either a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.
