The Department of Political Science offers M.A. students a minor consisting of 9 hours. The hours may be taken from any of the designated M.A. courses (excluding PS 5398, PS 5399A, 5399B and PS 5199B) since these courses encompass a broad range of topics in graduate political science.
No more than 3 hours of non-face-to-face classroom hours to include internship and on-line Texas State University political science courses may be taken. Students interested in study abroad courses should contact the graduate director.
Students must contact the political science department graduate director to learn the requirements for its minor. It is the responsibility of the student to acquire all information on minor requirements and to act in accordance with those requirements. The graduate 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.
