As the globe becomes increasingly connected, students gravitate towards classes that provide the interdisciplinary skills and international awareness required for success in the 21st century. The International Studies minor at CU Denver offers students a unique opportunity to create an individually­tailored and relevant minor based upon a spectrum of Liberal Arts classes.

These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their major advisor and CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.

Program Delivery

  • This is an on-campus program, available to students at the Denver campus and International College of Beijing.
