Minor in International Affairs

The International Affairs Minor is designed to provide you with relevant exposure to the analytical tools and substantive knowledge necessary to make sense of an increasingly complex global environment. The curriculum is flexible enough to engage a wide range of interests. For instance, you can focus on geographic regions, including Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East. Alternatively, you can focus on substantive issues, such as development, security, or the politics of international economic relations.
