Students taking the International and Global Studies Minor will examine the interactions between nations and the political processes within nations using a variety of perspectives. International aspects focus on how countries interact with one another, and how the social and cultural systems within them affect these interactions. Global studies looks at intra-national factors, such as how a state's internal characteristics impact that state's political processes. Immigration, technological advancements and internationalization of foreign policy make global studies a complementary approach to international studies.
