The study of politics includes a broad range of subject matter, including American politics, political theory, comparative politics, international relations, and political economy. The Department of Politics is committed to interdisciplinary approaches to the study of these subjects, and is prepared to accept, for example, courses in history, economics, and legal studies towards completion of the major.
Students are advised to consult with their major adviser in order to choose a set of courses that best serves their interests, academic goals, and career objectives. The politics and international relations major at Scripps College encourages students to take advantage of study abroad and internship opportunities that complement their major study.
