The five-course political science minor offers high flexibility in course selection so that you can prepare for a successful career and an engaged life.

For students cultivating careers in governmental regulation or policy (often those who are majoring in business, engineering, education, agriculture, or public health), a political science minor will assist in learning more about how various organizations interact with, or are impacted by, political institutions and public policy.

For students majoring in a related social science discipline, a political science minor may provide needed breadth to better understand your own field.

Some students may also choose the political science minor to help them make sense of an increasingly complicated political world in order to grow in their roles as global citizens.
