***To earn a BA in Political Science, 7-12 Education Licensure Program, the student would need to add a minimum of two semesters of a foreign language at the intermediate level. If not prepared for intermediate level, a year of elementary foreign language would also be required. This would increase the degree plan by 6-14 credit hours, and would necessity another semester of courses. A BA with licensure is rarely awarded in Political Science.
