Why Consider a Political Science Minor?
Many others who are not majors take political science courses as an essential part of their liberal arts education. Further, students with a Political Science Major or Minor can go on to law school, graduate school in international business, international relations, public policy and teaching. In sum, political science complements a number of other majors across the social sciences, humanities, natural sciences, and professional degrees, and can enrich inquiry into the problems of sustainability, cultural diversity, and internationalization.
The Political Science minor can complement other areas of study and prepare you for a host of careers, both domestic and international such as NGOs, government agencies, and business
How to Declare (Admission and Declaration Process):
Instructions and forms to declare the Major/Minor can be found at Declaring the Major or Minor | Political Science | Western Washington University. Students are welcome to contact the department for assistance.
