The Political Science Curriculum underwent dramatic changes prior to the Fall 2010 entering class. In our new curriculum, all lower division courses count for 3 semester hours and most upper division courses count for 4 semester hours. In addition, Political Science’s new curriculum has consolidated its subfields into four categories. While upper division requirements in the major and minor have changed, the total number of required semester hours to complete the major and minor has remained the same.
For upper division requirements, students now take a total of six upper division courses for the major, and three upper division courses for the minor.
Students entering Loyola Marymount University prior to fall, 2010, and who have questions about how this change affects their program of study, should contact their advisor in the Political Science Department, or the transition advisors, Dr. Richard Fox at Richard.Fox@lmu.edu, or Dr. Cassandra Veney at Cassandra.Veney@lmu.edu.
