Are you fascinated by systems of government, how they come to power and how they stay in power? The Aims associate degree in political science gives you a solid foundation for earning a four-year political science degree at a college or university.
Political science is the scientific study of the theory and practice of government and politics at the local, state, national and international levels. It is a social science focusing on government systems and power and their associated constitutions and laws. Political science analyzes political thought, behavior, and activities and the ways they shape society.
Earning a political science associate degree at Aims allows you to earn a bachelor’s degree while paying less in tuition. Thanks to a statewide agreement between community colleges and universities, upon completion of your associate degree at Aims you can transfer to any participating four-year public university in Colorado as a junior and earn your bachelor’s degree in political science. Taking your general education degree requirements at Aims instead of a four-year institution can save you considerable cost.
At Aims, your instructors, Pathway Advisors and coaches at the Aims Transitions Center will work together to guide you through the transfer process.
