A political science major or minor will satisfy the seminar requirement by taking a seminar in the Political Science 581-585 series. If possible, the selection should be the seminar in the general area in which the student expects to do a Political Science Senior Project. It is recommended that the seminar selected for this purpose be taken in the junior year or, at the latest, in the first semester of the senior year. A major may take more than one seminar; one of them may be counted toward some other political science department requirement. The Political Science 580-585 seminars may be taken by non-majors with permission of the instructor. All seminars offered by the department are designed to expose students to methods of analysis and current research findings drawn from a subfield within political science. A research paper is required in these courses. Distribution Requirements: None.
