LSC-North Harris Government Department


The Political Science Department provides a variety of courses designed to increase student knowledge and understanding of our governmental institutions, the public policies which they produce, and the overall political process. It offers fully transferable lower division courses which examine American Government at the national, state, and local levels, and which fulfill Associate Degree requirements and also satisfy basic Certificate of Competency requirements. Additionally, students may enroll in introductory courses which examine various political science topics, and also earn course credit serving as political interns in the offices of state and national office holders. Experienced, qualified faculty provide instruction in a variety of formats designed to meet the individual needs of students. In addition to small traditional face-to-face classes, classes are also offered online and in several other flexible schedule formats which do not require regular student attendance, including both independent study and video-enhanced instruction.
