Minor in International Studies
The minor in international studies is designed to increase the global awareness and cross-cultural sensitivity of graduates. Students may focus on one of the following five world regions: Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa, or Middle East; or one of the following three global topics areas: Global Conflict, Global Culture, or Global Economy.
The minor in international studies is an 18-hour program consisting of 1) a required core course, 2) one or two courses of upper-division directed electives dealing with global issues, 3) two courses in the world area or topic of concentration, and 4) a travel-study course. Courses taken to fulfill requirements for a major cannot be applied to the minor.
