International Studies, Minor

Offered in: CHICAGO

International Studies is a growing interdisciplinary field that offers students the opportunity to study politics, economics, history, sociology, anthropology and communication as parts of a complex and evolving global system.

A minor in International Studies is an ideal complement to many degrees, including all those in the social sciences and humanities that make up the bulk of International Studies courses, but also degrees in business, education, and communication. Since the minor is interdisciplinary in nature with a strong foundation in the liberal arts, it will round out your education, could give you an edge over others without knowledge of international processes, and help prepare you with the competency to engage the world as a active global citizen.


For the minor, students must complete three of the five core courses, plus three electives at the 300-level. Nine of the credits in the minor must be earned at Roosevelt. All courses must have a minimum grade of C.
