Minor: International/Global Studies

The International/Global Studies minor prepares you to live and work in an increasingly dynamic and diverse global community in the 21st Century. The minor will enable you to deepen your cross-cultural perspectives, and will provide you with relevant tools you will need to analyze global/international issues. You will earn transferable credits to help you pursue your interests in international studies in a four-year institution and beyond. Upon graduation, a minor or a degree in International/Global Studies will increase your chances of finding employment with international organizations in the U.S. and abroad.
