Earning a degree in political science paves the way for graduates to pursue a variety of roles that go well beyond government and politics, while also developing critical thinking, research, writing and analytical skills. No matter what area of political science you study, the critical skills you develop in research, analysis and communications can help you succeed both inside and outside the political arena.

Our online BA was designed for adult learners who want to earn a college degree or certificate while working full time or juggling other life priorities. Earning a degree online enables you to fit education into your busy schedule and help you achieve your personal and professional goals faster. A degree earned online at UofL is still a UofL degree. The name of the degree and the transcripts will not indicate whether the degree was completed online, on campus or through a combination of both methods.

Whether you’re looking to stand out in your company, make a career move, achieve a personal goal, be a role model for your loved ones or all of the above, online education through the University of Louisville can help you get there.
