International Studies Minor


Return to College of Arts and Sciences Return to: College of Arts and Sciences

The international studies minor seeks to help students understand the modern global environment in an interdisciplinary manner. Increasingly, careers in business, government, the arts, sciences, and humanities require international familiarity.

The minor approaches its aim in two ways.

Note(s):


These courses may not be used to satisfy both the general education requirements and those of the International Studies Minor. Students are also strongly encouraged to engage in an international experience. Such experiences may, with the approval of the university advisor for the minor and by the Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, may be counted for up to 6 hours toward this requirement.

To fulfill this portion of the minor, students must also demonstrate an intermediate competency in a modern foreign language. This can be done through successful completion of FLF or FLS 201-2 or by other means.

Note(s):


These courses may not be used to satisfy both the general education requirements and those of the International Studies Minor.

Students should be aware that the minor is very flexible, and can be tailored to the student’s individual goals in consultation with an advisor. (Students who wish to minor in International Studies should contact Brian Anderson, university advisor for the minor in the Department of History, Political Science, and Geography.) Students who have not declared a major will develop their course of study within the minor with the university advisor. Courses with rotating topics (e.g., BU 499: Special Topics in Business) may also fulfill the requirements of the minor, with the approval of the Department Chair of History, Political Science and Geography.
