International Studies Minor

Program Contact: Kristin Asinger

With the world rapidly "shrinking" because of the development of new technologies, an interdisciplinary minor in international studies makes sense regardless of your major. A minor in international studies will prepare you to work and live in the global community, whether you ultimately live in a small town in a rural area or a more cosmopolitan city.

If you minor in international studies, you will have relatively few requirements to complete and a wide variety of courses from which to choose. For obvious reasons, the minor involves at least three terms of a world language and study abroad. Additional scholarship are available to help you afford studying abroad.
