International Studies

Coordinator: Professor of Sociology and International Studies Ian Taplin

The minor provides an opportunity to explore the various facets of an increasingly globalized world. It is designed to expose students to a variety of transregional themes on the one hand and particular knowledge of specific regions on the other. Building upon an approved study abroad experience, students are able to develop a broader understanding of the complex and interdependent global forces that shape our current world.
