A minor in International Studies supports Humboldt’s mission of encouraging global citizenship by applying a scholarly framework to the processes of globalization in an increasingly interconnected world. For some students, the major’s requirement to study abroad and proficiency in a second language presents a challenge so the minor is designed to remove that obstacle while encouraging students to engage with our interdisciplinary coursework, adding an international dimension as well as a professional component to any program of study. 

The student learning outcomes for this minor include:  

  1. the ability to analyze regional and global issues from economic, political, and cultural perspectives;
  2. the ability to gather information and use interdisciplinary analysis skills to critically evaluate regional and global issues;
  3. proficiency in formal written and oral communication; and
  4. the skills you need to build an international career.
