International Studies (minor)

The international studies minor is an interdisciplinary minor. A student may embark on this minor after the associate dean and the coordinator, Professor Jugdep Chima, approve the proposed course of study. Professor Chima can be reached at 330-569-5143 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

The proposal must include a clear statement of purpose, a list of courses with a focus or concentration and an explanation of how each course contributes to the stated purpose. Area studies, cultural comparisons, humanities, or fine arts focus on a contemporary civilization or social, political and economic perspectives are examples of viable concentrations.

The minor consists of six courses, one of which will be an interdisciplinary course. Proficiency in a language at the 200 level and participation in a study-abroad program are required. The courses included in the minor can double count for college requirements.
