About

Studying the Political Science program offered by the University of Texas at Arlington is a powerful means of expanding your understanding of the policies, politics, governments, and international organizations that play a central role in the world that we live in.

Overview

The goal of the Political Science undergraduate curriculum is to maximize students' capacities to analyze and interpret political events and governmental processes. In addition to acquiring general knowledge about government and political behavior, students also learn the analytical skills relevant to particular political systems (their own and others'), and to problems of most immediate consequence and concern to them.

In addition to acquiring general knowledge about government and political behavior, during the Political Science programme from The University of Texas at Arlington students also learn the analytical skills relevant to particular political systems (their own and others'), and to problems of most immediate consequence and concern to them.

The four major objectives of the department's curriculum are to:
  • Identify and describe political structures, rules, behaviors and environments which shape political action.
  • Explain and employ statistical and methodological techniques to analyze information.
  • Identify, comprehend, and apply comparative, theoretical, or conceptual approaches to actors and their policies.
  • Develop the ability to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate political phenomena.

The major courses are designed to present a coherent portrait of the discipline. Students begin with a general introduction to national, state, and local politics followed by required courses in political methodology and political theory. Finally, students are exposed to at least four major areas of the discipline. The department also offers options for students who desire a concentration in pre-law, public policy/administration, or international studies. 

Students may choose any 18 hours (6 advanced) for a minor. Those who want a specialization may concentrate courses in areas of public law; policy and administration; comparative and international politics; American national government; political parties, group politics, and elections; or political theory.
