Students may take one Internship (PSCI-480X) toward the requirements for the minor and apply the credits to either global studies or comparative and regional studies.

Political science majors may minor in global studies, but the 15 credits from non-core areas must be taken in disciplines other than political science.

Students pursuing a global studies minor are strongly encouraged to study world languages and cultures, study abroad and participate in internships relevant to the field.
