Minor in INTERNATIONAL STUDIES An International Studies minor provides students with the tools necessary

Minor in INTERNATIONAL STUDIES An International Studies minor provides students with the tools necessary to better understand the complex and changing world of the 21 st century. Major objectives of the minor are to convey knowledge not only of international relations but also of comparative methods of analysis (i. e. , the similarities and differences between and among states, societies, and cultures); and to provide an interdisciplinary approach that integrates the knowledge and methods that history, political studies, economics, sociology/anthropology, women and gender studies, and geography/environmental studies have to offer. To earn a minor in international studies, students must complete a minimum of 15 or 16 credits of upper-division course work at the University of Illinois at Springfield. In exceptional cases, a student may petition the International Studies Committee to accept up to eight hours of transfer credit. Transfer students still must take the core course and follow distribution requirements. The Core Course is GBL 301 -Introduction to Global Studies. Electives totaling 12 credits must be taken from two areas: courses that provide an international perspective and courses that provide a comparative perspective. Students may not take more than one course in their major field of study to fulfill the International Studies minor requirements. Students should consult with an international studies faculty member to ensure that they are meeting their individual needs and the requirements for the major.
