The International Studies Minor
Professor: Bradley Gitz
At a time when intellectual and professional endeavors of all kinds have an increasingly international dimension, the minor in international studies is a secondary field of specialization that provides an understanding of the global aspects of contemporary problems. The minor will complement and expand the scope of a student’s major in any discipline. As an interdisciplinary minor, international studies draws upon the disciplines of political science, economics, history, foreign languages, and anthropology.
A minor in international studies requires students to participate in an appropriate study abroad program in order to develop an understanding of how nations interrelate culturally, politically, and economically.
