The International Studies minor is intended to recognize, for undergraduate students in any major, the completion of an education-abroad program, foreign language competency, and related advanced course work.

Ideally, the language, international, and advanced study should be integrated around some thematic or geographical focus.
A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE MINOR: 18-30 credits

SUPPORTING COURSES AND RELATED AREAS: 18-30 credits
12th-credit-level proficiency in one foreign language demonstrated by course work or examination

Students must complete 12 credits as participants in an approved Penn State Education Abroad Program, no more than 6 credits of which may be foreign language study beyond the 12-credit level.

Select 6 credits (400 level) related to the education abroad experience, or the student's major, or to complete a thematic concentration, selected from an approved list of courses with international focus or in consultation with the International Studies adviser.
