International Studies (Minor)

Menu

For students who do not wish to or are unable to pursue a major in International Studies, the minor offers the opportunity to gain a basic grounding in a rigorous, interdisciplinary approach to international affairs. Students who pursue this minor will benefit from an introduction to theories of nationalism, international relations, social movements, cultural studies, international political economy, and critical geography.​

The minor can complement traditional disciplines, as well as other interdisciplinary programs, by providing students with the theoretical tools necessary to critically analyze pressing global issues. Additionally, students will build their writing, reading, and research skills through the coursework required for the minor.
