Minor Requirements

By choosing our political science minor, you can explore the fundamental principles of political science and pursue particular subject areas of interest.

The political science minor is extremely flexible; to earn the minor, you must:

  • Take at least 20 quarter hours of political science courses—at least 12 quarter hours of which are at the 2000- or 3000-level.
  • Apply no more than 10 transfer or study abroad credits toward the minor.

If you're interested in pursuing the minor, we recommend that you take at least one introductory-level course in political science, such as PLSC 1000: Introduction to American Politics; PSLC 1610: Introduction to Politics: Power and Justice; PSLC 1110: Introduction to World Politics; or PLSC 1810: Introduction to Socio-Legal Studies.

Otherwise, you may select classes that are most interesting to you, as long as you meet the courses' prerequisites or speak to their instructors.
