The international studies minor provides an interdisciplinary perspective on contemporary global issues, dynamics, societies, and cultures. It is meant to complement a student’s primary major either by adding an international component to that major or by strengthening an existing international emphasis within the major. This can be achieved regionally and/or thematically. The international studies minor is designed to help prepare students for graduate study and/or professional careers in a variety of fields in which an awareness of the growing economic, political, social, and cultural interdependence of the world is important. This is accomplished by giving students flexibility and an opportunity to design their own course of study, within the structural parameters of the minor.
