Why Minor in International Affairs?
A minor from the Nunn School provides an opportunity to enhance your major degree program with specialized instruction in the globalization of politics, economics, and the increasing interdependence of states. The minor programs are designed for students who want an academic concentration in European Studies, Global Development, or International Affairs that demonstrates global competence and adds competitive value to a major. With a minor, students can cultivate personal interests, achieve well-rounded expertise, and gain a professional edge. Minors appear on transcripts.
