Helms School of Government - Government

The B.S. in Government provides students a strong foundation of knowledge and skill in the exercise of government, politics, law, public economics, administration, and policy.

The Politics and Policy specialization prepares students for employment or further graduate study in politics, public administration, and public policy. The curriculum best serves those who wish to be directly involved in the political process or policy advising.

The Pre-Law specialization curriculum insures that graduates are grounded in government, law, writing, public speaking, logic, and other skills that will help them master their professional examination (LSAT) and other admissions requirements to law school. For those not interested in pursuing law school, this specialization prepares graduates for employment in public or political organizations or for work in legal fields in a non-lawyering capacity.
