Description of Political Science Minor
The opportunity to explore American and World Politics are the key areas for the Political Science minor. The students in this field are widely diverse. Their majors include English, Criminal Justice, Sociology, and History. Students pursuing an English major typically use this minor as a way to pursue journalism. Also, Criminal Justice majors are welcomed to study about the constitutional framework which underpins the criminal justice systems. Sociology majors benefit from courses which deal with the role of citizens and groups in the political system. History majors could find out about more contemporary aspects of history that would supplement their course work.
