(18 Credits)

The minor in political science is designed to allow students outside of the Department of Politics and Geography to specialize in courses that are relevant to their major. While a student from any major can minor in political science, this minor is especially well suited for business, communication, history and philosophy majors. The minor is structured to allow students considerable flexibility in choosing courses.

NOTE: All courses in the minor require a ‘C’ or better. Courses used in the minor cannot be used to satisfy major requirements.
