Minor in Political Science


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Arts and Sciences

The minor in Political Science is designed to provide students with solid grounding in political science and to encourage them to develop depth in the discipline in an area that will complement their major or develop expertise in an area of particular interest to them.  To complete a minor in Political Science, students must complete 12 credits in Political Science with no more than 3 credits at the 100 level.  Students may apply up to 3 credits of independent study in Political Science (POLSC 29001-29003 ); however, internship credit may not be applied to the minor. 

The minor in Political Science allows students considerable flexibility in designing a minor that will best serve their academic goals. Students may, for instance, wish to focus on courses dealing with European politics and foreign policy to complement a major in a European language and culture. Other students may wish to emphasize courses in international and public law in preparation for law school. Students may concentrate their courses in one field of political science, or spread them across several fields. Students may consult an advisor in the Department of Political Science about their goals as they choose courses to satisfy the minor.
