Political Science, Minor

Why Choose a minor in Political Science

If you're eager to play a bigger role in local, state or federal government, consider a career serving the public.

With the Political Science minor, you will build a foundation in the principles and processes of American national government, international relations, classical political philosophy, legal theory and Constitutional law. Saint Leo prepares you for a future in the public or private sector, or academia.
