Political Science

Politics affects everything from business regulation to fights about freedom of expression. An understanding of how politics works and how you can influence the political system around you is critical to navigating our economy and being a good citizen.

A minor in political science can be a valuable addition to any major for any student, regardless of their career paths. Everyone from engineers and scientists to librarians and physicians confronts politics at the local, state and national level. Additionally, minoring in political science can provide a very useful complement to students majoring in related disciplines such as psychology, philosophy, economics, women’s and gender studies, geography, history and sociology.
