The Department of Government offers in residence only one major sequence to satisfy the legislative requirement of six hours of American government. The courses are as follows:

GOV 310L. This course is a standardized three-hour introduction to American national, state, and local political institutions and policies, and includes a study of the United States and Texas constitutions. An honors section of GOV 310L, American Government-Honors, designed specifically for Plan I honors and Plan II students, is offered once a year, usually in the fall semester. The prerequisite for GOV 310L is twelve semester hours of college coursework.

Credit for the first three hours of the legislative requirement can be earned by eligible students who make a satisfactory score on the College Board Advanced Placement Examination and CLEP American Government Subject Examination with supplemental test items in Texas government. Information about this test may be obtained from the Measurement and Evaluation Center, 2616 Wichita (471-3032). Only those students who meet all of the following requirements are eligible to receive credit by examination for GOV 310L: (1) have neither a passing nor failing grade for GOV 310L; (2) are not currently enrolled in GOV 310L; (3) have not taken the CLEP American Government Subject Examination within the past six months.

GOV 312L. This course allows the student to select one of several sections on problems and policies that pertain to American national, state, and local political institutions, and may include a study of the United States or Texas constitution. An honors section of GOV 312L, Iss & Policies in Amer Gov-Honors, designed specifically for Plan I Honors and Plan II students, is offered once a year, usually in the spring semester. Although GOV 312L topics vary from semester to semester, the course may not be repeated for credit. The prerequisite for GOV 312L is twenty-four semester hours of college coursework, including GOV 310L. For information regarding credit by examination for GOV 312L, contact the Measurement and Evaluation Center, 2616 Wichita (471-3032).

GOV 105. This course, offered only by correspondence, is designed for transfer students who need only one hour of Texas government to fulfill the legislative requirement.

No student may enroll in any government course requiring consent of instructor, consent of the undergraduate adviser, or consent of the graduate adviser without first having received that consent.
