Program Mission:

The International Studies minor equips students with the necessary language skills and social tools to enter into dialogue with and learn from the many diverse cultures of our world today. Designed to encourage students to lead lives of integrity in keeping with the College’s Catholic, Benedictine values and the Liberal Arts tradition, this minor will help students promote worldwide understanding and serve others, both nationally and internationally.

Note: Lower-level preparation for the minor ought to include study of a modern foreign language during the student’s freshman and sophomore years. Completion of a modern foreign language at the intermediate level is required for graduation in the minor.

Five upper-level courses in:

  • Business
  • Economics
  • History
  • Languages
  • Government and Political Philosophy
  • Theology

as approved by the Coordinator

It is the student’s responsibility to see that all degree requirements for graduation are fulfilled.
