Two additional electives are available for those interested in pursing careers in non-profit organizations after graduation.  These courses are offered by the Department of Political Science/Public Administration and will count towards a Women and Gender Studies elective in either a major or a minor.

Both of these courses, combined with an internship, will be attractive when applying for jobs in the non-profit market. 

  • PA 510 - Nonprofit Organization and Management (which is open to undergraduates) will be offered once every two years. 
  • PS 511 - Fundraising and Philanthropy.

Check the latest Schedule of Classes for both Political Science/Public Administration and Women and Gender Studies to find out when they are being offered.
