"Students decide to minor in political science for many reasons. Some take classes with a dynamic professor and discover that the field is fascinating and our courses help build useful skills. Others are interested in careers in related fields, like journalism, public relations, public policy or the law, and see the utility of deepening their understanding beyond a few courses. Still another group benefits from internship programs taken for upper division credit – in Philadelphia, Washington, or around the world. The six courses you take as a minor help you better understand your world, country or region/city – while giving you skills and experiences to help you succeed."
