Political Science Minor

Students majoring in other subjects who are interested in politics in the United States or throughout the world may want to consider a minor in political science.

The minor in political science gives you a better understanding of the political process, as well as more practical knowledge of how citizens, elected representatives, judges, and administrators approach political decisions. In addition to honing research and communication skills, you will be better equipped to become an active, engaged citizen of the world and a more astute observer of the political process.

Twenty-one units with a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher are required for the minor in political science. Minors must select two lower-level courses from political science and  five upper-division political science electives. View all minor requirements in the Undergraduate Catalog.
