Application for the Minor

international studies program

Students must submit an application form to the International Studies Office, Gasson 109. Students wishing to declare an IS Minor must do so by the first semester of their Junior year no later than the last day of drop, on or about October 3. The application requires a proposed program of courses that fulfill the requirements of the minor and are chosen from a list of acceptable courses. When the application is approved the minor will be listed on the student's University record.

The Carroll School of Management offers its own International Studies minor for CSOM students; contact Josephine Xiong in Fulton 360 for further details.

​The application form is available as a Google doc on which you may enter information before printing it out or sending it electronically. The Googe doc should be shared with the Program Administrator, Ms. Patricia McLaughlin at Please be sure to change the name of the document to the following format: Last Name, First Name, Class Year, IS Minor Course Plan (i.e., McLaughlin, Patricia, 2020 IS Minor Course Plan).​

The application form and the list of acceptable International Studies courses are also available in the International Studies Office, Gasson 109. It is important to read these guidelines carefully, fill out the form, and then set up an appointment to meet with an IS peer adviser in Carney 243 or our Graduate Assistant in Gasson 109. Graduate assistants are not available during the summer months. General questions can be emailed to

For the class of 2016 and beyond, the degree audit will no longer automatically pull courses into your IS minor on your degree audit. Students must fill out degree substitution forms and submit them to Ms. McLaughlin in Gasson 109 for approval. We ask students to fill out the degree substitution forms each semester so that the courses can be properly credited to degree audits for IS Minor requirements, and there are no surprises come senior year. We have created a Checklist Form for students to keep track of what they are doing each semester to be sure that you are on track to graduate with your IS Minor. Be sure to monitor your degree audit each semester and have this form signed by Ms. McLaughlin for commencement clearance in senior year.
