Department Overview
Political science is the systematic study of how societies organize to decide what to do and how to do it. The analysis of group decisionmaking extends over time and over group size, from committees to international institutions. The courses presented at Pierce College are lower division prerequisites for acceptance as a political science major in all of Washingtons colleges and universities. Students should also complete AA degree requirements and must check with transfer institutions regarding specific requirements and transferable credits.
