BA Program in Political Studies:
The mission of the BA program in Political Studies at AUB is to provide students with an understanding of the political ideas, institutions and processes that inform, shape, and regulate domestic and international politics. The core curriculum is designed to engage students in the critical analysis and assessment of the political world, and help them acquire the intellectual, practical and moral skills that are necessary for their development as future academics, civil servants, and responsible citizens. The program is committed to serving the university’s liberal arts model of higher education, and provides students with the intellectual means to understand and reflect on major political issues that define their individual and communal life.
Transfers to the PSPA major require a grade of 70 in PSPA 201 and PSPA 202, plus a minimum of combined grade average of 70 in ENGL 203 and ENGL 204. Prospective majors in their first year must complete PSPA 201, PSPA 202, and PSPA 203.
