Political Science Minor

Minor

Political science as a minor area of study consists of 18-24 credits of course work. POLI.2010 Research Methods is required. At least 6 credits must be taken in course work at the 3000-level or above.

While a Political Science minor should be useful for those students pursuing specific career objectives in areas such as law, public service, international business, and journalism, all students should benefit by achieving a greater understanding of public affairs in an increasingly inter-connected world.

For additional information or to declare a Political Science minor, contact the Political Science Department.
