Social Sciences Undergraduate Program Minors

Minor in Political Science

At Illinois Tech, political science is more than a theoretical discussion, it is an applied discipline that will give you the practical skills to identify and analyze real-world problems through the use of quantitative and qualitative research methods and policy analysis. At the same time, you will gain an understanding of the major concepts and the workings of political institutions, and learn about international relations, comparative politics, urban politics and public policy.

Requirements:

15 credit hours (5 courses)

  • PS 100 or PS 202
  • Plus 12 additional hours in political science.

Minor in Sociology

The study of sociology gives you powerful and innovative ways to think about and analyze human systems and behaviors. At Illinois Tech, you will study how technology, science, the built environment, social networks, and organizational structures shape the human experience. You will learn that things we commonly take for granted—morality, gender roles, the workings of the market, and even the notion of individuality—are produced through human interaction and are not merely natural. You will be challenged to understand how contemporary sociology is incubating fresh approaches to problems both local and global, theoretical and applied.

Requirements:

15 credit hours (5 courses)

  • SOC 200 or SOC 203
  • Plus 12 additional hours in sociology.
