The Department of Political Science and the Graduate School of Political Management work in cooperation to offer a dual bachelor of arts with a major in political science and master of professional studies in the field of legislative affairs degree program. The program allows students to take 9 graduate credits as part of their undergraduate program, thereby decreasing the number of credits normally required for the master's degree. All requirements for both degrees must be fulfilled.

Students interested in the dual degree program should confer with the department's graduate adviser early in their junior year. Visit the program website for additional information.
