Understanding how to analyze government, politics, and public policy is central to so many societal questions. The Political Science minor enhances your major, demonstrating key research, communication, and critical thinking skills to employers or graduate schools. Minor students can be involved in a wide range of Political Science activities both in and out of the classroom—this is a great minor for political “junkies” who just want to learn more about how the political world works!
Examples of classes include: Civil Liberties, Women & Politics, the American Presidency, Classic Political Theory, Civic & Nonprofit Leadership, International Terrorism, American Foreign Policy, Criminal Law, State & Local Government, Political Behavior, and Environmental Politics & Policy.
