The School of International Studies (SIS) offers two minors, one in International Studies (three international tracks) and the other in Anthropology.
The minor in International Studies helps students from other disciplines prepare for globalization in the 21st century by systematically deepening their understanding of the world outside of the U.S. All minors in international studies start with an introductory course on the world of the 20th century, followed by one of three different international tracks, Diverse Academic Track, Foreign Language Track or Study Abroad Track. Students pursuing a major in the School of International Studies are not eligible for an SIS minor.
The Anthropology Minor is designed to allow students with an interest in Anthropology the opportunity to combine a generalized sequence of courses into a program. An Anthropology Minor broadens a student's major field of study by exposing the student to the diverse ways of life of people around the globe. Students who complete the Anthropology Minor will have a greater knowledge of the theories, concepts, and methods used by Anthropologists in the study of human cultures, past and present. A Minor in Anthropology is excellent preparation for further study in any field that requires the abilities to understand and engage with people from other cultures (including teaching, medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, business, law, and counseling).
A student interested in the International Studies or Anthropology minor should consult with the SIS Director of Student Affairs early in his or her academic planning.
