The International Studies minor allows students to build a framework consisting of a region, a language, and a theme, and then construct their own curriculum from an extensive menu of courses from across campus.

The International Studies minor provides undergraduate students with: a challenging program of study including seven thematic or regional courses; advanced proficiency in a foreign language; access to special interdisciplinary seminars on international topics; and opportunities for study abroad.

The International Studies minor is an excellent complement to nearly any major, or for students planning to pursue advanced degrees in many fields including international relations, international law, or public policy.

Students considering international careers, careers in government or public service, and employment with nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) would benefit from participation in the International Studies minor.
