Bachelor of Arts in Political Science

Bachelor of Arts in Political Science

Effective August 28, 2013, the Bachelor of Arts in Political Science — formerly an offering of the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs — will be administered by the College of Humanities and Sciences. Current students will continue to be advised by the Wilder School through the fall semester of 2013. For more on transition related services, read our undergraduate FAQs.

The Political Science program of the VCU College of Humanities and Sciences has two central objectives. It offers students a broad liberal arts education and a comprehensive understanding of the nature and functioning of the political process and government. It also provides a sound foundation for graduate study in political science, public administration and nonprofit management, or for careers that require knowledge of governance and the political process, such as law.
