International Politics, Minor

A minor in International Politics will deepen and expand a student's knowledge of the discipline. In these courses, students will develop a greater understanding of world politics by examining current and historical events and issues in the field. Students will learn how international actors—states, inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations—interact with each other and/or create institutions for cooperation in order to maximize power and realize their ideals. The minor provides students with major theoretical approaches to critically analyze the development of the global polity, a knowledge base well-suited to all majors.

The following requirements below are intended for students declared after Fall 2022. If you have already declared your minor, please speak to your academic advisor for assistance.
