With a well-established online presence, UWM offers this BA in Political Science.  Coursework in this major is offered entirely through distance-learning, but requires you to be self-motivated and have strong time-management skills.  This is because your curriculum runs parallel to on-campus classes, following the semester calendar.  You’ll still benefit from the advantages and flexibility of online learning with this degree, as you gain a deep understanding of politics and prepare for a career in law, education, business or government.  This curriculum usually offers the following areas of emphasis:

  • American Politics
  • International Politics
  • Political Theory
  • Comparative Politics


  • High school diploma or equivalent
