About the International Studies Undergraduate Minor Program
An interdisciplinary minor in international studies is offered for students who wish to gain an understanding of how the nations of the world are economically, politically, socially, and culturally interdependent. The minor is made up of a 9-hour core of required courses and 9 hours of electives. The core courses are ECO 3333 - International Economics; GEOG 2351 - Regional Geography of the World; and POLS 3361 - International Politics. The advisor may allow substitutions in the core when it can be shown that they fit in with the student’s major program and academic objectives.
Elective courses are selected from among courses that deal with international topics in departments within the College of Arts & Sciences. Courses from other colleges may be accepted if they have been previously approved by the program advisors.
