Minor in International Studies

The globalization of the economy, increased cross-cultural relations, instantaneous reporting from world-wide media outlets, cross-border ecological crises, and political transformations are all making international studies more important in this rapidly changing world. As such, the international studies minor encourages students to begin thinking and acting within a global perspective, in order to meet these current challenges. Courses in the minor deal with topics as diverse as the relations of the United States with other countries, critical language studies, international economics, cultures and religions of Latin America or Asia. The minor consists of 21 credit hours across a number of disciplines, providing a broad-based, general exposure to international issues through a solid set of three core courses. A commitment to foreign language and/or international experience is an integral part of the minor. A wide range of electives rounds off the minor.
