The study of politics prepares students for a lifetime of critical and constructive engagement with their communities and the world. They explore authority, cooperation, deliberation, persuasion, resistance, rebellion, and other manifestations of power in diverse social, political, and economic contexts.

Undergraduate students from any school of the university who are not majoring in Liberal Arts can select a minor from Lang’s offerings. Similarly, Lang students who are not pursuing a BA or BS in Liberal Arts can select a minor from those offered in other schools, provided they meet the prerequisites and related requirements. (Lang students pursuing a BA or BS in Liberal Arts: See Self-Designed Major below.)
The minor in Politics requires the completion of the following five (5) courses, distributed as follows:
Courses should be chosen carefully, in consultation with the director of the program. Students pursuing the Politics minor are encouraged to download the Politics Minor Requirement Worksheet to track their progress. Students must receive grades of C or better in all courses taken to fulfill concentration requirements.
Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts cannot elect politics as an academic minor; however, they can pursue a deeper study in this subject area through the self-designed major. To explore this, contact an academic advisor and read more about the self-designed option at Lang.
