The University offers five area studies minors, each of which brings to bear on an important region of the world the expertise of faculty members from different departments. The purpose is to present a broad, integrated view of the region and its problems, past and present. Students who do not wish to take the entire minor may elect any courses for which they are qualified. An area studies minor consists of 18 credits.

The minors are:

  • African Studies
  • Asian Studies
  • Central and East European and Eurasian Studies
  • German Studies
  • Latin American and Caribbean Studies
