The International Studies minor provides credit for students who choose to complete a substantive off-campus experience. The purpose of this option is to encourage student engagement with a community of their choosing, and to consider the international and global implications of their life-worlds, whether it be abroad or at home. Students may choose to study abroad for a semester, J-term, or even a year; intern with an approved, internationally-oriented organization (pending departmental advisor’s approval); or complete an internationally-related independent study with a fieldwork research component. Students may choose from an approved list of organizations, or may even suggest a new institution
