A minor is an optional component of a student’s degree that will be reflected on the student’s transcript. Minors are an excellent way for students to customize their learning experience and craft a degree program that is uniquely theirs. Students can even earn multiple minors to supplement a bachelor's degree. For example, students pursuing a degree in interpersonal communication might find that a minor in sociology is an excellent pairing, while a student pursuing a degree in public administration might add a minor in sustainability issues to help create a cleaner, greener future. And in some cases, employers offer bonuses or higher salaries to employees who have a foreign language minor.

An International Studies minor focuses on the interconnected relationships of nations and cultures around the world. In an increasingly global economy, the International Studies minor helps train students to work in a wide range of fields with people all over the world.  An International Studies minor helps employees identify new markets and marketing strategies, work with foreign investors and companies, and compete on a global playing field. The International Studies minor, complements degrees in management, marketing, computer science, and international law. 



A International Studies minor complements a range of majors in both the College of Liberal Arts and elsewhere in the university. Some of these are:

  • Education
  • Professional Media
