Saint Louis University's international studies minor allows students to develop a proficiency in a foreign language, facility with key disciplinary approaches, knowledge of a world region, and exposure to a thematic area central to the contemporary world. They have the opportunity to integrate practical work experience or field research into the major. Students are strongly encouraged to study abroad and complete one of SLU’s regionally focused interdisciplinary minors, if their schedules permit.
Due to its interdisciplinary nature, the international studies minor allows students considerable choice in how they navigate through the requirements.
- Graduates will be able to analyze cultural, economic, political and social aspects of contemporary international issues.
- Graduates will be able to describe how culture and national identity affect a person’s perspectives.
- Graduates will be able to estimate the global or transnational impact of local actions.
- Graduates will be able to apply their knowledge of international phenomena to engage effectively as global citizens.
