The international studies minor provides a foundation in the study of a broad range of international phenomena, including, but not limited to, governance, economic development, humanitarian aid, non-governmental organizations, and conflict. Students completing the minor will:

  • gain knowledge of the international arena that can be applied to their own major area of study
  • be conversant with the major actors and geographic areas in the international sphere
  • demonstrate an awareness of the interconnectedness of the modern world.
