Political Science Minor

A minor in Political Science provides students from any major an opportunity to learn about the political world around them. Such knowledge can be a tremendous asset in the real world whether it is used simply to be a better citizen, such as being informed on the issues to evaluate political candidates, or to further a professional matter, such as knowledge on how to get a bill passed. A political science minor would be a perfect complement to many degree programs.

Note: Students will be held to all course prerequisites.
