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 Relations minor focuses on the political, economic and cultural interactions between nations and regions around the world. Students in this program are educated on the relations between states in the global community, how their interests align and diverge and how politicians and diplomats have successfully navigated these complicated relationships. This minor is especially complementary for majors in history, management, international relations, law, and journalism.



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

  • Human Resources
  • Strategic Communication
  • Management
  • Criminal Justice
  • Education
  • Business Law
  • Economics
