The International Studies minor provides students with an opportunity to explore and learn from a multi-disciplinary perspective how to live and work in a complex and diverse world.
The goals of this minor are twofold: 1) to help students gain the knowledge and information necessary to live and work effectively and harmoniously in our complex world; and 2) to help students develop critical thinking and analytical skills by using an international perspective to recognize and understand the diversity of people and cultures in the world.
