The International Studies minor can be paired with many different majors including those in business, education and science. The minor has required courses (6 crs.) that provide an overview of international studies. Core courses (6 crs.) and elective courses (9 crs.) give students flexibility to pursue their own international interests. Study abroad and foreign language learning are highly encouraged, but not required. Study abroad courses may be applied to a maximum of 15 credit hours of minor requirements. Students must take INT 200 and INT 300 at Shippensburg University.
The remaining three courses may be selected from a wide range of offerings in many departments. Electives need to be in at least two disciplines. Two of the elective courses must be at the 300-level or higher. Courses used to meet the core course requirement cannot double count as minor electives. A complete list of approved courses is available on the International Studies website www.ship.edu/ism. Study abroad and advanced language study are strongly encouraged and may satisfy elective credit.
