Declaring a Major in Political Science

The first step is to stop by the Department office (William Wehr Physics, Room 468) to pick up the appropriate forms that will be needed when meeting with our director of undergraduate studies, Dr. Risa Brooks.  Please contact her via email or phone
(414-288-6842) to set up a meeting.

Dr. Brooks will explain the major requirements, ask you about your interests, assign the most appropriate faculty advisor and answer any questions you may have. This initial meeting will take around 30 minutes.

We look forward to having you as part of our program!
