Distinction – Distinction is an honor that a small number of majors each year receive for having performed exceptionally well in the major. The standards are high for distinction, so if you choose to submit a paper for distinction, you will need to put time and energy into crafting and revising it.
Internships – Internships are structured educational work experiences designed to enrich and complement your academic program.

Independent Study – After completion of three courses in political science, students may approach a member of the department faculty and propose a course of study not currently offered to be conducted in tutorial fashion.
