The first course in politics at Bates was a class titled International Law in 1863. A course in Political Economy was added shortly thereafter. In 1897, the Department of History and Political Science was created. Political Science became a separate department in 1901, becoming the Government department from 1913 until 1980, when it reverted to Political Science. The current name was adopted in 2006.
This collection contains course syllabi and reading lists, as well as a departmental guide and brochures on the department's Citizenship Laboratory.
Files are arranged alphabetically by folder title.
