Political Science Program

Take a look at these exclusive Fall 2014 Political Science courses!

Red Rocks Community College offers an Associate of Arts Degree with an emphasis in Political Science. Political Science offers courses leading to an Associates of Arts Degree, which provides the first two years of course work towards a Bachelor of Arts. The AA and our guaranteed core courses are designed to transfer to Colorado's public four-year colleges and universities.

Offering Unique Opportunities for Hands-on Learning

In the Fall semester we offer State and Local Government (POS 125) taught by State Representative Lois Court, who invites a multitude of guest speakers to talk about their role in our state political system.

During the Winter semester, students can enroll in Inside Colorado Legislature (course number to be determined) and experience firsthand the legislative process. The only class of its kind in Colorado, where the instructors are elected legislators and the classroom is the Colorado State Capital. The department also provides internships and a wide range of traditional General Transfer courses in Political Science. See news article.
