Best School 4 PoliSci in San Diego(, CA) Order

<p>I'm a sophomore in college, and I'm really interested in studying Political Science [at least (if I'm able to major in more than one subject/minor in a subject other than Political Science as well-then, that'd be great!)]. I would like to know which of these three schools in San Diego has the best [(out) of the three] Political Science program & the second best [I (think that I) can figure out the last/third from there]: Point Loma Nazerene University, University of California -- San Diego, & University of San Diego.</p>

<p>I consider myself fairly at a disadvantage, but I'll give you my stats and you can decide for yourself. High school dropout right before the end of the first semester of sophomore year, didn't take the SAT/ACT, but went back & got my diploma (albeit from an easier different district) due to a disability. about a 3.86 now in college, but that's like taking one course at a time! [albeit some/most of the more recent ones were 8 weeks long (half the regular session)!] & I don't really feel that I've taken any really difficult classes yet...Phi Theta Kappa. No real (other?) extracurriculars.</p>

<p>I'd love your views on who has the best Political Science program! While my mother would prefer an university in San Diego, please feel free to refer me to any school regardless of location (such as a good private school), that has a GOOD program (I can easily find schools that have "A" program, but I would love CC'ers help finding GOOD ones)</p>

<p>Thanks so much</p>

<p>^ that's for graduate school</p>

<p>UCSD has the strongest political science program in San Diego. I hear USD has a strong program, too. Not too sure about PLNU, but I know the campus is gorgeous! :P</p>

<p>I think it's safe to assume that schools with certain strong graduate programs have the same strong undergraduate ones. Besides majors like engineering and business, there aren't many undergraduate program ranking lists.</p>

<p>UCSD is consistently ranked as having one of the best political science programs in the state, nation, and even world. Many rankings even place it above Cal and UCLA.</p>

<p>Just sign a tag for UCSD in September and you are set.</p>
