Political Science

Discipline Chair: Dr. Beau Bowers, 330-2722x4257, beau.bowers@cpcc.edu

Welcome to the Political Science Department at Central Piedmont Community College where we have several courses that will meet the needs and interests of students working on two-year programs, those who plan to transfer to four-year institutions and other who are just interested in political science. Although the content and focus of study differs from class to class, upon completion of our courses all of our political science students will be able to:

  • Understand Political Science as an academic discipline within the broader context of the social sciences.
  • Demonstrate their understanding of empirical methodologies associated with Political Science.
  • Demonstrate an ability to evaluate concepts and information to support an opinion, solve a problem, or reach a conclusion.

Demonstrate an ability to evaluate concepts and information to support an opinion, solve a problem, or reach a conclusion.

The College Catalogue lists several political science courses available at CPCC. However, only American Government (POL 120) is a Universal General Education Transfer Component Course (UGETC).
