Why add a minor in political science?

When you study political science, you gain keen insights into the social and economic forces that affect governments around the world. You'll take classes in public policy, international relations, comparative politics and similar topics, while rounding out your education with a spectrum of liberal arts courses that foster critical and independent thinking. The curriculum is flexible, allowing you to tailor your education to match your career goals. Depending on the electives you take, you can focus on pre-law, international relations, political activism or public policy.

With an emphasis on hands-on learning, UND students are encouraged to take internships — in the past, our students have worked with the North Dakota and Minnesota Congressional delegations, government agencies, law firms and judges.
