We encourage Political Science majors and undergraduates who are considering a major in Political Science to stop by the department to talk with either of our two full-time undergraduate advisors. We have walk-in advising hours every morning and afternoon, or you can schedule an appointment either in person or via Zoom. We can discuss your plans and provide information about classes, research opportunities, internships, careers, graduate school, and more.
