Minor Forms

Students majoring in a wide variety of fields find a minor in political science or public administration interesting and useful, providing knowledge and skills that enhance their careers, improve their citizenship and cultivate their minds. The minor appeals especially to students in the other social sciences or in business, journalism or administration of justice, although many others also use the minor to broaden their education. A special department minor advisor helps students customize their programs to support their special interests.
