Introductory Courses
If possible, students who enter as Political Science majors in freshmen year will take one of the POL 10X
introductory courses in each semester of the first year. These POL 10X sections are restricted to freshman. The
POL 11X sections are open to all students. Students are required to complete the introductory courses before
taking upper division political science courses. In particular, students shouldt take either POL 201 or 231 prior
to taking any upper division courses. The ideal is to take 201/231 in the 4th semester after having completed at
least three other introductory courses

Political Science Major – Typical Course Sequence
(for the Classes of 2014, 2015, 2016 & transfer students who entered SJU under the GEP)
Note regarding Three Overlays and the Faith & Reason Requirement: As noted on the previous page, in addition to
the courses outlined in the typical course sequence, students must complete: (1) one course certified in diversity,
globalization, or non-Western studies, (2) one ethics-intensive course, and (3) one writing-intensive course. An elective,
major course, select GEP courses, a minor course, or an elective may be used to fulfill these overlays. Below are specific
guidelines for each class with regard to overlay requirements and the Faith & Reason signature core course:
Class of 2014: Of the four GEP requirements, Faith Reason and the three overlay requirements, students in the class
of 2014 need to satisfy two of the four requirements With respect to these four components of the GEP, this means
that students in the class of 2014 would have to complete (1) a Faith and Reason course and one overlay requirement
OR (2) two overlay requirements.
Class of 2015: Of the four GEP requirements, Faith Reason and the three overlay requirements, students in the class
of 2015 need to satisfy three of the four. Students in the class of 2015 would have to complete (1) a Faith and Reason
course and two overlay requirements OR (2) all three overlay requirements.
Class of 2016: Must complete all four requirements - Faith Reason and the three overlay requirements.

See notes above for additional information on the overlay requirements. For Political Science Majors, the Writing
intensive overlay is satisfied by the POL 201 or 231 Research Methods course.
Seven Upper Division Political Science courses (POL 300-495) are required.
Note that the number of free electives may vary depending on AP credits awarded, the natural science option
completed (one lab course vs. two non-lab courses), and number of courses completed for the non-native
language requirement.
