The Political Science Honors Program provides outstanding undergraduates with opportunities for advanced study and faculty mentorship.

As a Departmental Honors student, you will work closely with a faculty member on an independent research project. Developing research skills is a key part of the Political Science major, and an Honors Project will enable you to take these skills up a level, as you will be mentored through the production of a substantial piece of original research. You will present your research to the Political Science faculty, though we have had multiple students also choose to present at academic conferences such as the UAB-Expo or even the National Conference of Undergraduate Research. 

Students who complete the program will receive a certificate at the annual UAB Honors Convocation and will graduate "With Honors in Political Science."
