Minors in Politics

Politics Minor

Students who major in another discipline may also decide to pursue a minor in politics. The politics minor requires completion of the three introductory courses (POL 111, POL 112, and POL 211); two courses in one of the three concentrations (American, world, or theory); and one additional politics course.

Politics Pre-Law Minor

There is also the option of pursuing a politics pre-law minor. That minor requires completion of two of the three introductory courses (POL 111, POL 112, and POL 211) and four pre-law courses:  POL 220 (Introduction to Law and Politics); either POL 323 (Constitutional Law I) or POL 324 (Constitutional Law II); an additional law-related course at the 300 or 400 level (such as 323, 324, or 404) and a final 400 or 500 level law-related course, usually in the senior year (such as POL 507, The Supreme Court, or POL 553, Constitutional Theory and Interpretation).  For further information contact Dr. Dennis Coyle.
