International Studies Program

The purpose of this interdisciplinary minor is to provide students with an education that broadens their knowledge of the people of the world, international events, and the socio-economic and socio-political background to global affairs. To do this, it integrates area studies and the study of international problems viewed from a cross disciplinary perspective. New curricular efforts, including global perspectives in issues-oriented courses, are emphasized.

This minor provides a splendid foundation for careers in which an understanding of international economic, political, social, and cultural affairs is of importance; it also provides a foundation for graduate work in the field; and is an excellent complement to majors in the humanities, social sciences, arts and business.
