Political Science Minor
College of Arts and Sciences
Department of Political Science
302 Bowman Hall
The Political Science minor is for students who have an ongoing interest in politics—at the local, state, national or international level—but whose primary area of study does not allow a second major. Students study the general subject matter of political science and then advance to specialty areas that meet their own interests, needs and plans of study.
