With DD in DC on the DL, DurDin I asked what her major was gonna be; answer Poli Sci. I know what a BS in Poli Sci means literally, but to me (and the non-USNA world) a BS in Poli. Sci makes about as much sense as putting wings on a Beagle. DD has the Chops for a BS in Chem. Eng. Etc.. She is walking around with Lt bars this week for her 6 week Chem score, (in her pocket, won't wear em). Anyway: 1) is there something about the USNA Poli Sci course of study that makes it special? (Particularly with respect to USN Intel??). I mean why not Computer Science or Cyber Science? 2) Does the BS in Poli Sci get her far enough along with basic Science courses to allow her to quickly complete a BS in a hard science major later-on if she wants? I bout got my head ripped off when I suggested that a BS in a hard science + any advanced degree would be a better combo if she ever chose to leave the Navy------------maybe it was the "chose to leave the Navy" part? I know this is her call BTW; save the "let go lecture" for another time please.
