THE WRITING REQUIREMENT IN THE GOVERNMENT MAJOR: The Government Department at Skidmore College is committed to helping its students become skilled writers. Recognizing that an important part of learning to write well in political science and government is learning to write well overall, the Government Department places considerable emphasis on both quantity and quality of writing opportunities in our courses and has adopted a wide-reaching and thorough set of Standards and Expectations for Written Assignments in Government and a Uniform Code of Notation for Providing Feedback on Written Work. Students in Government Department classes expect to be held to the expectations and standards established in these documents. Thus, by successfully completing the requirements for the Government Major, students fulfill the Writing Requirement in Government.
INTERDEPARTMENTAL MAJORS: In conjunction with the relevant departments, the Government Department offers majors in government-history, business-government, government-French, government-German, and government-Spanish. See Interdepartmental Majors . The department also participates in the International Affairs major.
