Political Science Minor (PLSAL)
About the Minor...
The political science minor is particularly useful for students contemplating careers in business, education, law, human services, criminal justice, environmental advocacy, engineering, or any field in which an understanding of government and the ability to understand, assess, formulate, and communicate complex arguments is essential.
The political science minor encourages students to develop the capacity to exercise sound judgment about important issues. Through a variety of classes, students expand their abilities to function as effective citizens, make well-reasoned decisions, and successfully communicate ideas.
The Political Science minor consists of 18 credits with at least one course in each of the following Political Science areas: American, theory/methodology, comparative, and international relations. Six (6) of these 18 credits must be at the 400 level.
When electing this minor, the student should have junior (fifth-semester) standing. Special attention should be given to the fact that courses used to satisfy general education, degree requirements, electives, and major requirements may also be used to satisfy minor requirements.
A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
REQUIREMENTS FOR THE MINOR: 18 credits
