The international studies minor serves as an introduction to the global community in which we live—its geography, diverse cultures and varied economic and political systems. You will explore these areas in relation to our increasing interdependence.
- Courses offer a diverse, interdisciplinary focus on political science, history, sociology, geography, religion and international business.
This minor will prepare you for experiences in cross-cultural education and overseas service or travel for business, leisure and ministry.
