Note: Students majoring in PP&E and Law and Policy cannot minor in Politics.
A minor in Politics will help you develop a solid understanding of political and social connections, the relations between states and international institutions, and the history of relationships between governments and citizens. This minor fits well with a major in environmental studies, history, communications, business, social work, or urban studies.
Students completing a minor in Politics will learn to:
Engage in and employ sophisticated theoretical reasoning to analyze issues related to politics;
Analyze and explain the politics behind current events;
Investigate the relationship between politics and other areas of inquiry;
Discuss and write critically about domestic and international political and social issues.
Students with a Politics minor are better prepared for careers in government, law, planning, nonprofit management, community work, diplomacy, business, teaching, journalism and other fields, and better prepared for graduate study in these areas.
