The International Studies Minor is open to any major in the University and prepares students to work with greater confidence in a complex world. In addition to providing an international experience, the minor gives students valuable professional skills needed to have an edge in the job market. Students conduct research in locations such as Spain, Germany, China, Italy, Japan, Korea, France and Singapore and receive credit.

One of the most powerful educational, professional and personal experiences is study abroad. International Programs at the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts is committed to promoting International opportunities that result in positive academic, personal and professional growth.

Our mission is to increase our number of students, faculty and staff who have international experience by creating a path and reducing barriers to the overseas experience. We provide outreach, service, and support to students, faculty and staff seeking international opportunities.
