INTERNATIONAL STUDIES MINOR

Susan Johnson (Coordinator)

 The International Studies minor is designed to combine a foundation in key international studies courses with a concentration in one geographic area of the student's choice. There is no specific foreign language requirement, but students are encouraged to take foreign language courses. The minor compliments many majors and is especially valuable for majors in economics, business, history, foreign language, geography, political science and sociology. Specific regional emphasis courses should be selected in consultation with the International Studies Program coordinator to provide both breadth and depth of study in a region.

LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES MINOR

Seth Meisel (Coordinator)

 The Latin American Studies minor is designed for those who seek to supplement their regular field of study with a multi-disciplinary specialization on Latin America.
