Students may take courses leading to a Minor in Political Studies in conjunction with any degree in any other subject area in the College of Arts and Science.

The Minor average in Political Studies will be calculated using the grades earned in all courses eligible to be included in the Minor program requirements. Students must complete at least two-thirds of the program requirements (rounded to the nearest highest multiple of 3 credit units) using courses offered by the University of Saskatchewan to meet the Residency requirement.

Students are advised that a second language is a valuable asset. French, in particular, should be considered by students, especially if they intend to pursue a career in the federal public service.

  • 18 credit units POLS courses, of which 6 credit units must be at the 300-level or higher.
