General Political Science Minor


Seven political science courses, with a minimum of five upper-division are required for the minor. Please note that POLI 5(D), 27, 28, 40, 197SD and 197I may not be applied to the minor. For students entering UCSD prior to winter 1998, the minor requirement is six political science courses with a minimum of three upper-division.

Courses taken toward a minor must be taken for a letter grade and earn a C- or better. The only exceptions to this are the following courses in which a P/NP grading option is the only option: POLI 198 RA and POLI 199. For these courses, student must earn a "Pass" grade.

Minor petitions can be found on Tritonlink and are submitted electronically. Be sure to complete the petition correctly by listing 7 political science courses, at least 5 of which are upper-division.
