Areas of Study


If you are a political science major, then you must meet regularly and work closely with a faculty adviser within the political science department.

Faculty advisers provide guidance on coursework and unblock students' PINs so they can begin registering for their courses. They also offer information on internships, honors theses and careers in political science.

You can find your political science faculty adviser by checking the lefthand column of the "Student" tab in PioneerWeb. Don't see your adviser listed? Send an email to

You're always welcome to call our main political science office line, 303-871-2743, or email if you have a general question for the Department of Political Science.

  2. Check out our handy checklists for Majors (PDF) and Minors (PDF).
