Government & Politics

The Government & Politics option has been discontinued. Students who have this curriculum as their major should complete all requirements by May 2019.

New students interested in pursuing a major in Government and Politics should choose the A.A. degree in General Studies where they will be able to tailor their degree to the transfer institution of their choice. Students should consult an advisor and ARTSYS before determining their course selections.
