Political Science

School of Liberal Arts

IUPUI's political science students gain insight into how government works in Indiana, the United States, and countries all over the world. They are trained to be critical observers and informed, active participants. They are also prepared for a variety of careers—from politics to teaching, law, public administration, and business.

Degree Maps

One of the most difficult tasks of being a college student is figuring out what classes to take and when to take them. In order to make the process a little easier, each major at IUPUI has its own degree map outlining the path you should take to graduate as quickly as possible.
