Out of the ones that you are interested in, sociology would probably be the best choice.

The ones that I have thought about and I believe fit very well are history or economics. I thought I had more, I guess not :/

Yeah, there are a lot of minors that would fit well. You should probably chat with your academic advisor, or go to the political science department of your university and talk with them.

Hm. I'm a Poli Sci major too, but I'm going to law school. Have you thought about having a business minor? That's what I'm doing.

I really, really do/did not want to be a business major/minor. It seemed like it would only help you start your own business(which I don't really want to do) or get a boring corporate job.

Well, that's not necessarily true. I think it's pretty important to have at least a little business background if everything falls through and you have to take a desk job or what have you.

Sociology would be good. Some others to consider would be economics, philosophy, english, a foreign language, and/or some sort of energy/environment subject.

Not sure what year you are, but you can probably pull of 1 or 2 of the above.

Whaaa? SO not true! As a political science major, you must realize what a huge role business plays in the political landscape. I think understanding how business works will help you understand their motives and functioning, and the enormous role they play in our capitalist society.

Also, business is such a broad field that it does not have to be paper-pushing if you don't want it to be. I think marketing and sales are actually really fun! Lots of human interaction, strategizing, and psychology involved.
