Political Science is a community and academic major within the Behavioral and Social Sciences Academic and Career Pathway at Cuyamaca College.
The motto of our program is: "With you every step of the way".
Our vision is to inspire publicly spirited and scholarly minded students, ensure every student enrolled at Cuyamaca College has the opportunity to successfully complete an introductory course in political science, U.S. politics, California politics, international politics, comparative politics, political science research methods, and public policy, and support every declared political science major to successfully earn their Associate of Arts-Transfer (AA-T) degree.
Our mission is to provide the highest quality instructional experience for all students in face-to-face, online, and hybrid settings; and serve as effective academic, co-curricular, extracurricular, and career mentors to students who are declared political science majors.
You should major in political science to become a publicly spirited, scholarly minded, and civically engaged individual who has the knowledge, skills, and abilities to effect political and policy change at the local, state, national, and international level.
Cuyamaca College offers a robust AA-T in Political Science that includes courses in Research Methods and Public Policy.
You should double major because you can, and because you keep your options open after you transfer to a 4-year university and beyond.
You can double major in Political Science and another academic field of your choice, such as Communications, Economics, Psychology, Public Health, Sociology, Spanish, Arabic, History, or Environmental Science.
If you have already applied and were admitted to the college, then start here!
