Global technology, communications, and commerce are shrinking our planet. Whether you're living in Geneva, Guangzhou, or Grand Junction, employers need workers with international skills. Can you handle cultural diversity? Do you understand the history and dynamics of global politics and economics? Can you communicate clearly in a foreign language? Do you have experience traveling and living abroad? If you can answer "yes" to these questions, then you've got an edge in today's competitive global workforce.

The International Studies minor gives you those advantages and more. It's thoroughly interdisciplinary, and a perfect complement to CMU degrees in business, communication, education, STEM fields, and the social sciences. You can tailor the minor to your interests by choosing from a wide variety of courses in the sciences, humanities, and social sciences. Best of all, International Studies minors get real-world experience by participating in CMU's affordable study-abroad programs.
