A minor in political science is particularly appropriate for students in professional programs such as psychology, law enforcement, criminal justice, human services, social work and international business. Such a minor is also an excellent complement for liberal arts students who are majoring in history, gender studies, professional communication, ethnic studies or philosophy.

Social studies majors may NOT minor in anthropology, political science, or sociology.
At least half of the credits required for the minor must be completed at Metropolitan State University. Students must earn a grade of C- or above in all minor courses.
Transfer courses may be applicable to minor requirements. The university's degree audit will specify transfer courses that are directly equivalent to minor requirements; other transfer courses must be approved by the chair of the Social Science Department. Only one lower division course (100 or 200 level) will be accepted for the minor.
