Notes:

* This document is for planning purposes only. Depending on the AP/IB tests you have taken, transfer coursework that you bring to Pacific, and your own interests, the plan you develop with your adviser may be different from what you see here.

Although five political science courses can be found in four general education (GE) categories, only two POLS course may be used as part of the GE breadth program.

It is possible to test out of the College's foreign language requirement, but membership in Phi Beta Kappa requires at least two years of foreign language coursework.
