Generally, a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 is required in courses included in the minor, with no single course grade below 2.0. Second undergraduate degree candidates completing the minor may be required to take additional courses at Oakland University beyond the stated minimums. Please note: STEP minors in political science who have transferred a 3-credit American Government course must complete either PS 302 - Congress and the Legislative Process or PS 311 - Women and Politics. Either of these courses also can serve to meet part of the 24 credits of requirements noted above . Students must consult with the secondary education minor adviser in the department.
