Minor in Politics
The minor in politics enables students majoring in either business or liberal arts to focus in selected areas of the study of governmental policy. Areas of study may include topics such as American Politics or International Politics. In addition to its own inherent value, a politics minor provides a useful basis for studies in many other more specialized areas of knowledge such as marketing, management, public policy, organizational behavior, business communication, human resources, social work, and education.
