Transnational Perspectives Minor

Penn State Erie, The Behrend College (TNTLP)

Contact: Dr. Zachary Irwin (zti1@psu.edu)

This interdisciplinary minor is designed for students who wish to supplement their major field of study with international understanding and study. It introduces students to global concerns and multicultural issues and broadens students' understanding of the critical forces molding their nation and their lives in the twenty-first century. The Transnational Perspectives Minor is proposed for students planning international careers in their professional fields, careers in organizations engaged in international activity, and those with a general interest in global studies. The minor consists of 18 to 30 credits, at least 6 of which must be at the 400 level. Twelve credits or evidence of third-semester proficiency of a foreign language is required. The program of study is to be developed by the student in conjunction with an International Studies adviser. A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
