Political Science (POLS)

Political science students examine the theory and practice of government and politics. They gain an understanding of, and an ability to analyze, political theory, political systems, governments, and international relations. They learn how to evaluate individual, group, and mass behavior in political settings.

At Green River College you may begin your studies by taking courses that prepare you to be "major ready" and transfer to a university. While you are taking your major prerequisites within your transfer degree, you can focus your distribution choices and elective credits toward meeting your educational goals and area of interest.

All transferability of classes to four-year institutions is at the discretion of the receiving institution. Students should contact an advisor at the college to which they intend to transfer. Please visit the College Transfer Center for more information.
