The International Studies Minor and Area Studies Certificates help students to prepare for a variety of careers. As we move to a more interdependent world, the need for professionals who understand international affairs is growing. The minor and certificates enhance employment opportunities in business, education, geography, government, information systems, international agencies, journalism, law, modern languages, public service, science, and other fields.
The goal of the International Studies Program is to prepare students for an increasingly globalized world by encouraging knowledge and understanding of other societies and cultures. Since the world’s economic, political, and cultural environment is interconnected; this minor is appropriate for many career choices in the U.S. and abroad.
