War, Policy, and Society Minor

Advisor: Suzanne Sutherland

The interdisciplinary minor in War, Policy, and Society is designed to demonstrate that war is more than combat, military history, or the study of campaigns and battles. In the modern world, war has been integrated with capitalism, with the development of nationalism and empire, and with current-day terrorism and organized crime, among other things. The minor brings together the intellectual strength of several disciplines and focuses on this complex, multi-dimensional subject.

The minor consists of 18 hours of upper-division electives chosen from the list below.  Courses must be selected in consultation with the minor advisor. The student must take at least one course from three of the five participating departments. No more than two courses (six hours) may be counted from any single department.

Interdisciplinary Minors

Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.
