Political Science


AA-T Degree Program

Political Science, the study of politics and government, examines ways and means by which societies identify and solve problems. The exercise of power in decision-making processes and its effect on societal resources
is explored and weighed. Political values and beliefs are determined and evaluated for further depth of under-standing. Political science courses enrich the general education program. The Associate in Arts in Political Science for Transfer is suited to the needs of students who will complete their education at Chaffey College
with an A.A. degree, as well as those students who will complete their Chaffey A.A. degree and transfer to a four year institution to complete their bachelor’s degree. Successful completion of the transfer degree in Political Science guarantees the student acceptance to a California State University (but does not guarantee acceptance to a particular campus or major) to pursue a baccalaureate degree, in preparation to pursue a career in the field of law, government service, city management, public administration, foreign service, journalism, business and teaching. Refer to the Programs of Study section of the current college catalog.
