Political Science Concentration

Associate of Arts

This concentration is currently inactivated and is no longer accepting new students. If you are interested in this area of study, please see the Associate of Arts - Liberal Arts. If you have any questions regarding this program, please see an advisor.
For students currently in the concentration, the requirements are listed below.

You sign a petition to put a proposal to a public vote. Other people sign the petition, and the proposal is placed on the ballot. On Election Day a majority votes in favor of the proposal, which becomes the law. So the minimum wage rises from $11 an hour to $15.

That’s the power of the people. Studying how groups of people exercise power is at the core of Political Science.  

Political Science students are interested in the workings of government. They want to understand the impact of the laws, policies and rules that government imposes on the people. And they keep up on  current affairs, because Political Science is grounded in the here and now.

At Pima, Political Science students will learn how U.S. government works, and how ideas influence governments around the world. They also will gain an understanding of the important connection between Political Science and Economics. Our students come away with the knowledge to understand and possibly influence  of what’s possible in the political arena.
