International Studies Minor

Longwood University offers a minor in International Studies, combining courses in the social sciences, humanities, arts, and sciences, for those students who wish to devote a part of their education to learning about societies other than their own.

Many students combine their interdisciplinary focus in International Studies with a major in a field such as Political Science, Economics, Business, Foreign Language, History, or English, in preparation for careers in international service, business, non-governmental organizations, foreign service, the Peace Corps, and for pursuing graduate work. Students will pursue courses in the minor during study abroad in summer or semester programs, while acquiring first-hand experience with life and work in another culture.

Students who wish to participate in the minor should contact Petra Visscher, Executive Director of International Affairs, Stevens Hall 111. E-mail: visscherpm@longwood.edu
