Political Science

This minor fosters the understanding and appreciation of political science and examines the significance and influence of politics. The minor program also provides the foundation for further studies in American government and politics, constitutional law, and international relations, and serves as a useful supplemental program to majors in other disciplines. Associated with studies in political science, the Model United Nations program provides students the opportunity to apply their learning to debates on international relations issues.
