Courses within this minor encourage students to understand social, political,
economic and cultural contrasts throughout the world. If you are interested in this
minor, you can contact your undergraduate advisor to declare the minor. The minor
must be declared prior to the semester of your graduation.
Students structure the minor from three clusters of courses and learning experiences
encompassing International Decision Making (6 credit hours), International Environment
(9 credit hours) and International Experience (3 credit hours). In addition, each
student must complete 10 credit hours of a foreign language or provide proof of
foreign language competency.

Each student must have an international experience. This will typically be in
the form of a Study Abroad program, foreign internship, or Foreign Service Learning
program. Additionally, this requirement can be met through a non-credit international
experience of at least four weeks in length. If any of the above items are for non-credit
activity, the 3 credit hours must be obtained through enrollment in any of the above
approved courses. International students will be exempt from this requirement but
must achieve the 3 credit hours through other options available.
Each student must complete the equivalent of 10 semester hours of foreign language (defined as a language that is not the student’s native language). Students with established proficiency may be exempted by examination. Information on examinations may be obtained from the Office of Testing and Evaluation or the Foreign Language Laboratory.
