International Studies Minor

This 21-hour minor is for students who would like to augment their major with an International Studies component.  This minor is designed to be available for on-campus as well as Virtual College students.  Students who complete the International Studies Minor will have the minor listed on their transcripts.  Increased globalization, and the significant interdependencies between the U.S.A. and the rest of the world, underscore the importance of an international perspective.
