A minor in political science consists of 18 credits, including POLI 103 U.S. Government, POLI/INTL 105 International Relations, and at least three upper-level (300-400) credits in each of the four areas of political science (comparative politics, international relations, political theory and methodology, and U.S. politics). See political science adviser for list of courses in each area. POLI 492 Independent Study and GVPA 493 Government and Public Affairs Internship cannot be used to fulfill the 12 upper-level credits.

The VCU Bulletin is in transition! As we move from this first iteration of our online Bulletin to a new product and process, what you find on this website is information for the 2014-15 academic year.
While much of the curricular information remains the same, changes that were approved with the effective date of fall 2015 will not be reflected on this website. Prospective students may wish to contact the school or department that administers their program of interest in order to discuss the most current curriculum and concentration options.
Enrolled students who are completing their studies under an effective Bulletin may continue to access the archives at http://www.pubapps.vcu.edu/Bulletins/archives.aspx, where past Bulletins are available to reference or download.
Our anticipated launch of the new VCU Bulletin is July 2015. To follow our progress, visit the new Bulletin blog.
