Preparing students for graduate study in politics or for a career in public service or international affairs.
The Politics Minor at The King’s College gives students a solid knowledge of politics, including politics outside the United States. Government is the regulation of public affairs, and politics is the means by which people determine whose views of government will prevail. King’s is rooted in the tradition that urges Christians to engage the political realities of their time. The Politics Minor contributes to that end by requiring students to take courses in political philosophy, American political history, constitutional law, comparative government, and international relations. These requirements ensure that students pursuing the minor are introduced to the main “subfields” of academic political science. The minor is designed to serve as a possible springboard for graduate study in politics or for a career in public service or international affairs.
