Political science is a popular program for both undergraduates and graduates at Saint Louis University and among the largest in the College of Arts and Sciences.
In the undergraduate programs in the Department of Political Science, individual class sizes are small. You can expect individualized attention from your professors and will also have the opportunity to conduct research, either by assisting professors with their research or by writing an honors thesis as an undergraduate. With multiple Bachelor of Arts options, as well as minor options, you can find the undergraduate political science program that's right for you.
Undergraduate political science majors at SLU can start taking graduate classes before
they earn both a bachelor's degree, earning both a B.A. and a M.A. in political science in five years as part of our accelerated
program. Students apply to the program during their junior year and must have a GPA of at
least 3.4 to be admitted.
