The minor in International Studies requires a minimum of 15 s.h.
The minor must include IS:2000 Introduction to International Studies, or one International Studies "foundation" course from the list below.
The minor must also include 12 s.h. in upper-level coursework approved for the International Studies major completed at the University of Iowa:
- Upper-level courses have a course number of 3000+ (ex: HIST:3155 is upper-level)
- Courses approved for the International Studies major are listed in the International Studies Course Database
To preserve the multidisciplinary nature of the International Studies minor, students may count a maximum of 6 s.h. from a single department, program, or from the Tippie College of Business, or from a major, another minor, or a certificate toward the International Studies minor.
Students must maintain a grade point average of at least 2.00 in the minor. Course work in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass.
