POLITICAL SCIENCE COURSES AT MIT
MIT has a very distinguished graduate program in political science and offers some excellent undergraduate courses, most of which can count toward the major at Wellesley. Some MIT courses listed under political science are taught by an instructor who is not a member of that department. Such courses normally cannot be counted toward the political science major at Wellesley. Note: All approved MIT courses transfer to Wellesley at the 200-level.
Courses in the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) in Political Science at MIT can count towards the Political Science major at Wellesley if the student writes a substantive research paper as part of her UROP work and that paper is evaluated by the UROP supervisor as part of the final grade. The supervisor must inform the Political Science Transfer Credit Advisor at Wellesley by email that the paper has been evaluated.
A list of MIT political science courses that can be counted for major credit will be posted on our department website each semester. If you have questions about a particular MIT course, please consult with our transfer credit advisor.
