Why Minor in International Studies?

A minor in international studies focuses on modern languages, regional geography and non-western courses. It is designed for students who want to study the world and have a cross-cultural understanding about working with multiple cultures in the United States and other countries.

Students learn about global events and trends through classes in political science, geography, languages, history, economics, marketing and art. After taking the required courses, students have the opportunity to customize this minor from pre-approved electives.
