Course Listing


Courses listed below are grouped together alphabetically by subject prefix.  To search for a specific course, please follow the instructions in the course filter box below and click on “Filter.”  

Departments and interdisciplinary programs are described in detail on the Majors, Minors, and Other Programs  page within this catalog.  Please refer to the detailed sections on each area of study for more information.  Requirements to fulfill a major or minor appear within each program or area of study.

All students must also complete the courses in the Common Curriculum (General Education), including Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) requirements and other requirements that pertain to the undergraduate degree. Courses are numbered as follows.

000-049 - Non-credit courses.

050-099 - Common Curriculum (General Education) courses and others that do NOT count toward the major.

100-199 - Introductory-level courses which count for the major.

200-299 - Sophomore/junior-level courses that often may be easily taken by non-majors. (Some departments may use 200-249 and 250-259 to delineate between sophomore and junior level offerings.)

300-399 - Upper-level courses intended primarily for majors - these are courses representing the depth component of the major.

400-499 - All advanced courses for seniors, including those used to fulfill WS (Senior Writing Experience requirement), small seminars, research, thesis, and independent studies.

Wherever possible, the departments have indicated the instructor and the term during which a course is given. Some courses are offered only occasionally and are so indicated. The College retains the right not to offer a course, especially if enrollment is insufficient.

A few courses are not valued at full course credit, and some carry double credit.

A full course unit may be equated to five quarter-credit hours, or three and one-third semester credit hours.

 

Political Science - Political Theory

200-level courses survey a wide range of texts and themes, and may focus on a specific historical period or a specific theoretical approach. These courses can be taken by students at all levels.  

300-level courses are geared towards students who have likely taken PSC 113   or a 200-level course in theory, and have basic familiarity with the history of Western political thought. Some familiarity with close reading and textual interpretation is expected, although these are practices and skills that students will also further develop in 300-level courses.

Unless otherwise indicated, prerequisites for the following courses are PSC 111   or PSC 112   or sophomore standing.

200-level courses in United States politics generally focus on institutions of government, political behavior, or public policymaking. These courses are framed at a conceptual level accessible to students from across the college.

300-level United States politics courses focus on a special topic (such as film, political psychology, and constitutional law) and/or contain a strong methodological component.
