Undergraduate Programs

Undergraduate class sizes are small in the SLU Department of Political Science. You can expect individualized attention from your professors. You will also have the opportunity to conduct research by assisting professors with their research or writing an honors thesis as an undergraduate. With multiple Bachelor of Arts options and minor options, you can find the undergraduate political science program that's right for you.
