The International Studies minor combines introductory global courses and interdisciplinary area studies courses. The area studies (IS) courses examine the culture, economics, geography, history, politics, and society of regions and nations outside the United States. The IS minor complements most majors offered at the University and contributes to preparation for a variety of professions in an increasingly globalized economy.
