Political Science (Minor)

Majors in other fields who wish to complete a minor in Political Science are required to complete six courses.

Requirements for the Political Science Minor

The Minor Requirements Worksheet may assist students in tracking their progress.

At least three of the six courses must be taken at UMass Boston.

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.
