Students who enter IU in Summer 2013 will have the following requirements:
The minor comprises of at least 15 credit hours of College of Arts and Sciences course work including the following:
- INTL-I100 or INTL-I220
- One core course (200-level) that establishes the student’s thematic concentration
- Three 300/400-level courses within the department (excluding I400, I405, I406 and I498):
- One 300-level course within the chosen concentration
- Two additional courses of student’s choosing
Pre-2013 Minor Requirements: The minor comprises at least 15 credit hours of College of Arts and Sciences course work including the following:
1. I100 (3 credit hours).
2. Two introductory International Studies courses (6 credit hours) chosen from the six 200-level core courses (I201, I202, I203, I204, I205, and I206), which serve as gateways into each of the six thematic concentrations. One of these two core courses must introduce the thematic concentration in which the student chooses to focus (see #3 below).
3. Students must choose two approved electives at the 300-400 level (6 credit hours) in one of the six thematic concentrations in which they wish to focus. These thematic concentrations are Culture and the Arts, Global Health and Environment, Global Integration and Development, Human Rights and Social Movements, International Communications and Nations, States and Boundaries
4. If students choose coursework outside the College in partial fulfillment of their concentrations, they will need to take additional College of Arts and Sciences approved electives in the thematic concentration to bring the minimum total of College of Arts and Sciences hours in the minor to 15.
Courses taken to fulfill minor requirements may be cross-listed with courses taken to fulfill students' requirements in their major, except in cases where the major department prohibits or limits it.
Declaring the minor: Students who wish to declare the INTL minor or who have brief questions that can be answered within about 10-15 minutes may come during walk-in hours on Fridays from 9:00-10:30am in Woodburn Hall 332. Students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis during this time. Questions that are more complex, including advising for registration, require an appointment.
