Complementary to a major in History, Business, English, Sociology, or Psychology, Taylor’s minor in Political Science helps students build a strong foundation for growing passions in politics, leadership, and the American nation.

Classes cover a wide variety of political subjects, including political thinking, comparative politics, state and local politics, public policy, and the roles of Congress and the President. Taylor's dedicated faculty teach all classes from a Christian worldview perspective, and a Political Science minor will equip you for a variety of future careers.

Graduates with a minor in Political Science can follow career paths in the government as politicians or congressional staff members, become political writers, or join advocacy groups for areas like education and the environment.
