The international studies program offers a self-directed minor that complements many degree plans at Towson University. Courses can simultaneously count for the international studies minor and other degree plans offered by the university. The minor requires 21 credit units to complete. Students must take 6 credit units (two courses) of foundation courses from the international studies major degree plan from at least two different disciplines. Students must also complete 15 credit units (five courses) from the list of approved upper level electives for the international studies major degree plan in at least two different disciplines. Internships may also be counted toward the 15 upper level electives as long as students follow the protocols finding an internship and enrolling in INST 493.
Students in the international studies minor must also attain an intermediate level of proficiency (through 202) or equivalent in any modern foreign language that is offered by or can be tested by the Department of Foreign Languages. Language units through 202 do not count toward the 21 units needed for the minor.
As an international studies minor you are not required to see an advisor for international studies but students are encouraged to contact the director of the program Dr. Matthew Durington with any potential questions.
