Statistics: 3 credits Language: 6 credit hours in Language History: 6 credit hours of HIST 221 and HIST 222 Unspecified Cognates: 12 credit hours. Cognates may be taken in Political Science and/or related fields depending on the individual student's interests and career plans. In all cases students must have the approval of the Department in selecting cognate courses. Electives: 14 hours Legal Studies: Law and Politics Students pursuing this track will take most of the required courses in the Political Science major, but will substitute 2 legal courses, Introduction to Law & Society and Legal Analysis & Persuasion, for 2 upper level Political Science courses. Students who intend to go on to law school are encouraged to complete the Legal Studies Certificate. The certificate can be completed within the four year program by using those courses as the allowable cognates and electives offered in the Political Science Program. If the pre law school student does not want to complete the certificate, they are encouraged to take some of the Legal Studies courses so that they can learn skills that could enable them to find summer employment and/or part-time employment in legal settings. Some helpful courses would include Legal Research & Writing I and II, Public Records Research, and Computers in Law. Political Science Curriculum (Numerals in front of courses indicate credits)
