I was thinking of changing my declared major from Legal Studies to Political Science mostly because all of the classes I am interested in taking in Legal Studies are actually in the Political Science Department (Con Law I & II, Judicial Process, Criminal Law, First Amendment, etc.). Anyway, after reading the requirements for the major, I saw that I would have to take at least one class in American Government, International Relations, Political Theory, and Comparative Politics. I was wondering if there is a statistics and/or research methods requirement for the Political Science major like there is for Legal Studies? I was hoping to just take a general electives class to fulfill Quan Reasoning B as opposed to taking statistics.
Also, I was little unclear if after I take at least one class in each of the four required topics if I could specialize in the subtopic Courts and Judicial Administration and therefore just take classes that interest me.
