The following specialization courses are in addition to courses taken for core courses, managerial and organizational skills group, policy analysis group, and research tool group above:
POL 495 Seminar (1-3 cr.) and POL 499 Readings and Research in Political Science (1-3 cr.) must be PA courses consistent with the category it is used in. Permission is required to take POL 495/POL 499 in PA major.
CLS college option of not having a minor allows you to take a variety of electives in addition to the three required courses. See faculty adviser to plan your specialization.
Students must possess a cumulative grade point average of 2.50 or above to declare and remain a PA major, and to graduate. Public administration majors in CLS and SAH will be able to complete at most 30 credit hours in the College of Business Administration (accounting, information systems, management, marketing and finance courses). Prerequisite for College of Business Administration upper division courses is junior standing. However, students are strongly encouraged to take either ECO 110 Microeconomics and Public Policy (3 cr.) or ECO 120 Global Macroeconomics (3 cr.) prior to enrolling in those upper division courses. Some of the above courses require prerequisites not included as part of the major. A course can only be used in one category.
All students must complete the general education, college core, major/minor, and university degree requirements in order to qualify for a degree. The easiest way to track all of these requirements is to refer to the Advisement Report (AR) found in the Student Information System (WINGS) Student Center. All enrolled students have access to the AR.
The following conditions apply to one or both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees:
Courses used to fulfill general education requirements will not apply to core requirements except for language courses (CHI, FRE, GER, RUS, SPA, MLG) that count in the general education requirement: "Mathematical/logical systems and modern languages" (GE 02, category 2).
Candidates for the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science degrees must accomplish the following:
Grade point average requirements for some programs will be considerably higher than 2.00. Re-entering students may be required to earn credits in excess of the 120 needed for graduation in any curriculum in order to replace credits earned in courses in which the content has changed substantially in recent years. Each case will be judged on its own merit.
No degree will be awarded unless all requirements are fulfilled and recorded within 30 days after the official ending date of each term.
