The Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy offers two undergraduate majors: Political Science and Public Policy and Management. In addition, students may pursue graduate course work in either political science or public administration as part of a combined degree program (a B.A./M.A. in Political Science or a B.A./M.P.A. program in Public Administration). In each of these programs, students can apply a portion of their credits in graduate work to both their undergraduate and graduate degrees, earning either a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Policy or a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and a Master’s of Political Science or Public Administration in 11 semesters.

All undergraduate courses offered by the Rockefeller College, except R PAD 110, 111, 210, 211, 380, 381, 480, and 481 are considered liberal arts and sciences courses for purposes of degree requirements.

All courses listed in this College are preceded by the prefix letter R.
