Marie Olson Lounsbery, Interim Director, 120 A Brewster Building

The international studies minor program is designed to provide a central core of study along with a world region or academic topic and is available to students in any undergraduate division of the university. The minor will provide insight into social, political, cultural, and economic areas of international importance in our increasingly globalized society.

The minor program, coordinated through the Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences requires 24 s.h. credit and can be earned with or without participation in either overseas opportunities or language training, although both are encouraged. Courses must be approved by the coordinator. No course credit counted toward a student’s major may be used to fulfill the requirements of the program.
