Students are introduced to some of the various subfields of political science and the scope of the discipline. The Associates of Arts program also serves as a foundation for further professional or academic study in pre-law, business, secondary teaching with an emphasis in social studies, public administration, international studies and other related social sciences. Undergraduate degrees in Political Science are often the path chosen by many seeking entrance into law school though it should be noted that other disciplines can be equally successful.
