About the Political Science Discipline

Political Science focuses on the theory and practice of government and politics at the local, state, national, and international levels. It is dedicated to developing understandings of institutions, practices, and relations that constitute public life and modes of inquiry that promote citizenship. The Associate in Arts in Political Science for Transfer is designed to prepare students for a seamless transfer into the CSU system to complete a baccalaureate degree in Political Science or similar majors.

“As soon as any man says of the affairs of the State ‘What does it matter to me?’ the State may be given up for lost.” ― Jean-Jacques Rousseau, The Social Contract
