Political Science and International Relations  

Open to students from any major, this 18-credit-hour minor provides students an active experiential program focused on effective and sustained community engagement. Students design a program that mixes experiences in the following areas: skills/practicum, internships/study abroad, and community-based research practicum.

Note: None of these courses can also be counted to meet the requirements for the major in Political Science.

Required Courses (6 hours)

Take two of the following:

Electives (12 hours)

Choose 12 hours from the following courses. Please note that most courses may be repeated for credit. Also, several 3 hour internships with different experiences are more valuable than one or two 6 hour internships–discuss this with the department internship coordinator.

NOTE: A maximum of 6 hours for any one of these internships may be counted toward the minor (if the internship is for 9 or 12 hours, it may be possible to apply the additional hours to your major-discuss  this with your faculty advisor).
