Minor in International Studies
(typically 18–20 credits as listed below)
The International Study minor provides an inter-disciplinary opportunity to explore a variety of international issues. Interested students should meet with their major advisers and with the Director of International Studies. Participating students must declare their intent through the Registrar’s Office.
The International Studies minor consists of five courses totaling 18 to 20 credits. Courses for this minor may not include more than two at the 100 level. Students may count one course, but not more than one, toward both the major and the International Studies minor.
1. Two Introductory-level courses. (See major requirements for a list of these courses.) It is expected that students will take IS 101.
2. Three Intermediate/Advanced-level courses.
If students study abroad, they can substitute up to two appropriate courses taken abroad with prior approval of the Director of International Studies.
If students completing this minor decide to apply for the master’s program in International Peace and Conflict Resolution, refer to the IPCR 4+2 program.
