International and Global Studies Minor

The International and Global Studies Minor at Elon University provides students with an interdisciplinary approach to the critical study of global issues and globalization more generally. Through their foundational required courses, students will gain an understanding of the different perspectives and approaches to global studies, as well as knowledge about international relations and world history.  Students then have an option to focus their minor in three possible areas - courses focused on global issues and phenomena (covering multiple regions); courses focused on one region of the world; or courses focused on a world language, literature, and culture.  Students are highly encouraged to study abroad for a semester.
