Political Science

NOVA’s Alexandria Campus is just across the Potomac River from the US capital and world-class city, Washington, DC. NOVA-Alexandria offers a wide variety of Political Science (PLS) courses that all transfer directly to major four year colleges and universities. Whether your interests are in international relations and world politics, or American politics and governance, or the political and governmental affairs that take place at the state and local level, NOVA-AL PLS courses will meet all of your academic needs and intellectual desires. Our classrooms thrive on student input and informed opinions, so there’s lots of opportunity for discussion and debate. We also aim to educate outside of the classroom and can work with individual students to set up internships all over the DC region.

NOVA’s Political Science courses fulfill all social science and general education requirements. Of course, PLS Courses also help fulfill the political science requirements in the A.S. in Social Science Degree with a Specialization in Political Science. You can read more about the A.S. in Social Sciences - Political Science Specialization in the NOVA's Catalog.
