The Minor

A Political Science minor may help students make sense of the political world that confronts them in their role as citizen.


The minor may be earned by the successful completion of a minimum of five courses (carrying at least three credits) in Political Science. All courses counted toward the Political Science minor must be taken for a letter grade and no fewer than three of the five Political Science courses must be taken within the department. Only one of the five may be at the introductory level and two of the five must be at the 300 level. (A 200-level introductory course cannot fulfil both the introductory requirement and the 200-level requirement.) The minimum GPA for a Political Science minor is 2.0. Your transcript will show Political Science as your minor.
