Of the 20 hours offered for the minor, at least nine must be taken at Baldwin Wallace. Any student may minor in Political Science. With its emphasis on broad skill development, substantive politics, and civic awareness, the minor complements many different majors. Every Baldwin Wallace student must learn to cope successfully with a complex 21st century world. The Political Science minor is designed to help students develop this capacity.
