Interdisciplinary : Minor in International Studies

Coordinator: Roman Zylawy

The minor in international studies is designed to provide students with understanding of the economic and political structures, languages and literatures, history and interrelationships of cultures other than their own. It is particularly suited to enhance the education of students majoring in English or history, concentrating in business, economics, or political science, or pursuing a College Major involving foreign languages. The student will plan a coherent curriculum in consultation with the international studies coordinator and the advisor of the
academic major.
