Graduate Minor in Political Science

The Department of Political Science offers MA students a minor consisting of 9 hours. The hours may be taken from any of the designated MA courses (excluding PS 5398, PS 5399A, PS 5399B and PS 5199B) since these courses encompass a broad range of topics in graduate political science.

Please Note:
No more than 3 hours of non-face-to-face classroom hours to include internship and online Texas State University political science courses may be taken. If you are interested in study abroad courses you should contact the MA program director.

You must contact the Department Political Science MA Program Director to learn the requirements for the minor. It is your responsibility to acquire all information on minor requirements and to act in accordance with those requirements. 

The MA Program Director may require additional background courses to be taken at the undergraduate level if insufficient work in the minor field is reflected on the undergraduate transcript. Political science majors do not have a minor requirement.
