The minor in public affairs offers you the opportunity to become more knowledgeable in the field of public administration and the policy implications of the public sector. It is available to students who are enrolled in baccalaureate programs and can enhance career opportunities for liberal arts and other majors.
Each minor requires 15 hours of specified courses with a 2.0 grade-point average, and none of the courses may be taken by correspondence through the Division of Continuing Studies.
SPEA majors may double-count only 6 of the required 15 credit hours in other SPEA major or minor requirements. Students may earn more than one minor from SPEA, but each minor must have at least 9 hours that are not satisfying other major or minor requirements.
