The Political Science Department offers two minor options within the Department and another two minor options with which political science faculty are involved.
Political Science Minor
Security Studies Minor
Political Science faculty are involved with these minors outside the department.
Asian Studies Minor
To appreciate the Asian peoples-their languages, their history, their society, their political/economic systems-and the Asian experiences in the United States, the Asian studies minor is designed to be broadly inclusive. Students are required to choose five courses from a variety of Asian courses offered at UNH, no more than three of which can be from one individual discipline. Students are strongly encouraged to enroll in Asian languages classes at UNH as well as explore Asian courses at other US and Asian institutions.

Middle Eastern Studies Minor
The minor in Middle Eastern Studies acquaints students with the Middle East through the interdisciplinary study of language, history, politics, geography, and anthropology. Middle Eastern studies encompasses the study of the region and the flows of migration, ideas, literatures, social movements, war, and natural resources that make the region pivotal to world history and the global economy. Students are required to complete five courses, which may include transfer credits and study abroad opportunities. Further requirements are available on website.
