Students today are under increasing pressure to specialize, and many are likely to enter a global culture and to interact with citizens of many nations. Accordingly, it is to their advantage to learn as much as possible about the traditions, values, and problems of other peoples, and to be sensitive to environmental issues that affect us all.
This program broadens the curriculum base of students from almost any field, thereby facilitating their appreciation of their global community. The International Studies Minor has immediate relevance and application for students from a variety of majors (e.g., business, education, the arts, geography, history, public administration, and the social sciences). The program is designed to give maximum flexibility to students so that they can easily integrate it into their current programs.
