Political Science - General - Minor
A minor is an optional component of a student’s degree that will be reflected on the student’s transcript. Minors are an excellent way for students to customize their learning experience and craft a degree program that is uniquely theirs. Students can even earn multiple minors to supplement a bachelor's degree. For example, students pursuing a degree in interpersonal communication might find that a minor in sociology is an excellent pairing, while a student pursuing a degree in public administration might add a minor in sustainability issues to help create a cleaner, greener future. And in some cases, employers offer bonuses or higher salaries to employees who have a foreign language minor.
One of the main goals of education at the University of Central Oklahoma is to make students responsible, involved member of their communities. There is no better way to do that than to be politically informed and active in government decisions. Whether it's at the level of school board, municipal, county, state, or federal, the decisions made in the halls of government affect us every day. A Political Science minor not only gives students the tools necessary to understand the workings of government, it gives them the knowledge to drive the change to improve our communities and our world. In addition, a Political Science minor complements degrees in business, marketing, advertising, sociology, history, computer science and education.
A Political Science minor complements a range of majors in both the College of Liberal Arts and elsewhere in the university. Some of these are:
- Human Resources
- Strategic Communication
- Criminal Justice
- Business Law
