Department of History and Political Science
Apart from the academic majors in History, International Studies, Political Science, and Prelaw, the Department of History and Political Science offers academic minors in History, Political Science, Peace Studies and Social Science. Any of these minors can be combined with the department’s traditional History and Political Science majors or with most any academic major at Barry University (both within and outside the College of Arts and Sciences) to create an enhanced, unique, and integrated academic program suited to the particular academic and professional interests of a student. A minor can be added to most majors without additional coursework beyond the university’s required 120 credit hours. Students interested in adding a minor to their program of study should consult with their academic major advisor and well as the particular professor listed as the contact person for each minor in the links above.
