Political Science Course Approval Policy for Off-Campus Study
If you are interested in using a course taken while studying off-campus toward a major/minor in Political Science or one of the joint majors in which Political Science is a participant, you should:
Declare your major and consult an advisor in the Political Science Department, if you have not already done so.
Talk to your departmental advisor about courses in the intended off-campus study program that might satisfy requirements for the major or minor in Political Science or for Political Science requirements for one of the joint majors.
While students can and should come up with a few options for courses to take while off-campus, please note that the Political Science department normally accepts only one unittaken abroad to fulfill requirements.
Once you determine with your advisor which are the best course options for your time studying off-campus, you can submit an official course approval request using the Summit system. Please note, you are REQUIRED to upload a syllabus (a course description alone is not sufficient).
