Do you want to learn how federal state and local governments work? Are you interested in why, sometimes, they don’t? Collin College government coursework emphasizes historical context, contemporary political analysis and critical thinking to provide you with a greater understanding of the role of government in Texas and American politics.

An Associate of Arts degree with coursework in government is a stepping stone to a liberal arts education and can be the basis for a bachelor’s degree from a college or university.

To earn an associate degree, complete the 42 credit hour General Education Core, and 18 credit hours of general studies electives and the Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree requirements. Check with your transfer institution before registering for general studies electives to make sure your courses will be degree applicable to your bachelor degree at the transfer institution.
