Requirements for the International Studies Minor
The international studies minor program is designed to provide a central core of study along with a world region or international topic and is available to students in any undergraduate division of the university. The minor provides insight into social, political, cultural, and economic areas of international importance in our increasingly globalized society.
The minor program requires 24 semester hours (s.h.) credit and can be earned with or without participation in either overseas opportunities or language training, although both are encouraged. Questions about course planning can be addressed to the International Studies Coordinator, Dr. Sylvie Debevec Henning, office Ragsdale 116B, phone 252-328-5520, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. No course credit counted toward a student's major may be used to fulfill the requirements of the program.
Course requirements detailed below are divided into 1) Core Courses (Intro, plus a choice 2 other Core Courses) 2) Concentration Courses (Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, or Specialized Studies) and 3) Senior Seminar (a capstone core course, completing the courses for the minor).
