Which courses count for the subfield requirements?

For Foundational and 1000-level courses, subfields are organized by number as follows:

  • Gov 10 and 1030–1099: Political Thought and Its History
  • Gov 20 and 1100–1299: Comparative Government
  • Gov 30 and 1300–1599: American Government, Public Law, and Administration
  • Gov 40 and 1700–1999: International Relations

In addition, some Gen Ed courses taught by Government Faculty members may count for subfield credit. Finally, you may petition the DUS for subfield credit for a seminar if you are not using it to fulfill the Gov 94 requirement (note that these petitions are not always approved, since some seminars are interdisciplinary).
