The major invites students to critically evaluate the LDS members role in national and international politics. Majors are exposed to the different subfi elds and associated theories in the academic study of political science. Upon graduation, students should have a practical understanding of how each level of government functions (local, state, national, and international) as well as a solid foundation in the academic study of politics and government. The Department offers BA degrees in with emphases in American Government and Foreign Affairs. The department also offers minors in and American Government Education. The department sponsors a chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Honor Society. American Government Emphasis The American Government emphasis is available to students who wish to concentrate on the American political process. This includes the study of national politics including the three branches of government. State and local political institutions, public opinion, and voting behavior are also considered. Foreign Affairs Emphasis The Foreign Affairs emphasis is available to students who wish to concentrate on comparative and international politics. This includes the study of American and other foreign policies, international law and political economy. Different approaches to democracy and economic development are also considered. Department Requirements Students must earn a C- or better in all major coursework. Major courses may not be used to fulfi ll multiple requirements (no double counting). Brigham Young University Idaho A Note Regarding Law School BYU Idaho, like many universities, does not have a specifi c major called Pre-Law.

Students developing a major may choose a minor or cluster in International Studies, International Business, Economics, or other related disciplines.

Career Opportunities Students should work closely with their advisor to choose an emphasis that best suits their long term goals. In addition to preparation for graduate school, students may wish to become teachers, lawyers, or serve as public offi cials.
