Political Science Minor Program
Even though a minor program in Political Science is presently offered, students are strongly advised to consider the Public Policy minor instead because not all of the courses listed below are taught on a regular basis.
The minor program is designed to meet the following objectives:
- To promote informed understanding of contemporary public affairs.
- To explore analytical and conceptual tools necessary to understand political events, institutions, behavior, and change processes.
- To augment other areas of Social Science study.
- To provide preparation for law school, graduate school, and government service.
The program consists of eighteen credit hours in Political Science courses approved by a faculty advisor in Political Science.
