Hiram College

A focused course of study

The international studies minor consists of six courses with a minimum of 20 semester hours, in addition to language competency.

Students must take one of the following required gateway courses for the minor:

  • COMM 25000: Communication Between Cultures
  • ECON 22700: Globalization in Economic Perspective
  • HIST 13800: World History 1800 to Present
  • POLS 22300: Comparative Politics

Of the remaining five courses, one must be interdisciplinary and all of the other four must be chosen from at least two different disciplines outside of the student’s major(s).  Proficiency in a language at the 202 level is required. A study-abroad course is strongly recommended, but not required.
