Do most colleges require math for Political Science majors?

I want to major in Political Science and I was wondering if I would have to take any math classes in order to do this. I know it kind of depends on the college but, in general, do most Political Science majors require math courses? If it helps, I'll most likely be attending a large university rather than a small liberal arts school.

Also, if math is likely required, whats the highest level of math that will probably be required? I'll be taking AP pre-calculus as a HS senior next year, will I need anything beyond that?

Thanks!

    All Universities will require some basic level Freshman Mathematics coursework. It should be pretty clear in your school's core requirements.

    As long as you go to a reputable school you will be required to understand and complete a certain level of mathematics. I have started at the community college level and just to get an AA you must demonstrate proficiency in Intermediate Algebra but to transfer to a four year school you must complete atleast one mathematics course above this regardless of your major. This means something like College Algebra, Statistics or in my school you can take "Ideas of Mathematics" which deals with truth and logic as well as a myriad of various topics in mathematics.

    Since you're in AP Precalculus I don't think you will have a problem completing one of the courses I have mentioned to earn your degree.
