Bachelor of General Studies (U)
Master of Liberal Studies (G)
Minor in Political Science (U)
To obtain a Minor in Political Science (on campus or virtual), a student needs 20 credit hours in courses designated (POLS). Please visit with a Political Science advisor for suggestions appropriate for your academic and professional interests. It is possible to aim all or most of your Minor credits toward an area of emphasis in the major (ex: Pre-law, International Relations, Political Management). You may also "double dip" General Education and Minor courses (ex: American Government, Current Political Issues, and/or Introduction to International Relations can count toward both General Education and Minor credits).
