Minor in Political Science

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study


Students minoring in political science must complete 12 credits in political science. No more than three credits can be at the 100-level. No more than three credits in independent study (POLSC 29001-29003 ) can be used to satisfy the minor. Internship credits may not be applied toward the minor. 

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.  

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. 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.
