Political Science (Minor)
Majors in other fields who wish to complete a minor in Political Science are required to complete six courses, including Political Science 102 and either Political Science 101 or 103, and four other Political Science courses, two of which must be at or above the 300 level. At least three of the six courses must be taken at UMass Boston.
The Minor Requirements Worksheet may assist students in tracking their progress.
The department also offers a Minor in Public Policy and a Minor in International Relations.
Note on the PASS/FAIL Option:
Political Science minors may use the pass/fail option for no more than one departmental distribution requirement or elective. Students who declared the minor prior to September 1, 2002 may count more than one pass/fail course toward the minor if taken prior to that date. Those considering taking a Political Science course pass/fail should first consult their advisors.
