The undergraduate minor in international studies requires a minimum of 15 s.h. in courses approved for the international studies major (see Requirements for the B.A. in International Studies), including 12 s.h. in courses numbered 3000 or above taken at the University of Iowa. The minor must include IS:2000 Introduction to International Studies or one of the courses listed under "Foundation Courses" below.

Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor. Course work in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass. To preserve the interdisciplinary nature of the minor, students may count a maximum of 6 s.h. from a single department or program, from the Tippie College of Business, or from a major, another minor, or a certificate toward the minor in international studies.
