Political Science minor

Students pursuing a minor in political science will learn critical-thinking skills to help them make sense of the complex world of politics.

A minor will expose you to the major fields of the discipline: American politics, international relations, comparative politics, and public policy. You will build data-analysis skills in the Research Methods course sophomore year, where you work with real data to test your own research ideas.

To earn a minor, students must complete five required courses and one elective, all with a grade of “C” or better.

This program is popular among students interested in pursuing law school and those majoring in History and Studies in War & Peace, but it’s a great fit for virtually any major at Norwich.

For a minor in political science, the student must complete 18-credits (six courses) with a grade of “C” or better.

  • PO105: American Politics
  • PO106: Intro to Public Policy
  • PO202: Comparative Politics
  • PO215: International Relations
  • PO220: Research Methods
  • PO Elective (must be upper-division)
