Department of Political Science

Spring 2022

Enrollment for Spring 2022 is just around the corner - have you started thinking about what courses to take? Why not consider taking a Political Science course? Our courses cover a variety of topics more relevant than ever to the world today!

Check out our Spring 2022 Course Schedule and the listing below to see some of the courses we have to offer next semester!

Once you know which courses work best for you, your next step is enrollment advising. You will set up an appointment with your advisor by e-mailing them directly. Wondering when you'll be able to enroll? You can check your enrollment date in KSIS now! Simply log in and look under the tab labeled "Enrollment Date". You should also check under your "Advisor" tab to check who your academic advisor is if you do not already know. Graduates, seniors and high-level juniors can meet with their advisor much earlier than their enrollment date, though for all other students it is best to schedule advising closer to their enrollment date.
