International Studies

Minor in International Studies

Interested in learning more about politics and economics on a global scale? Look no further than the International Studies (IS) minor. Students in the program develop a deep understanding of the historical foundations of the international sphere and are able to analyze the global context utilizing anthropological, economic, and political lenses.

The IS minor provides students with the opportunity to complement other programs on campus by internationalizing their perspectives. This is particularly relevant for students in fields such as Business Administration to help them navigate the international economy of the 21st century. 

In addition, through participation in the applied-learning Soliya Connect program, students have the opportunity to engage with people from around the world through an online portal. The international and cross-cultural skillsets IS students receive are equally relevant to Anthropology, Economics, History, Politics, and Sociology majors. The IS minor complements already existing globally-focused Modern Languages majors and minors in Asian and Africana Studies.
