Program is designed for students wanting to complete the first 2 years of a bachelor’s degree at the community college and transfer to a university to complete a BA in Political Science. Students explore governmental structure and processes. Careers often require a BA degree or higher. Political Science is the study of the political process, and its students understand the difference between an opinion and an argument. Political science graduates have a passion for political life not only locally, but also globally. Students will discover the origin, development, and operation of political systems and public policy. This program introduces students to Political Science and it includes courses that are common to all four-year institutions in Colorado. Career paths for Political Science degree holders include much more than running for political office. They also include public service, law, international relations, business, political campaigns, and working for charitable organizations. The Associate of Arts (AA) degree in Political Science prepares students to complete the second half of a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Political Science at a four-year university.
