Minor in International Studies

Students at Kentucky State University must be prepared to participate and compete in our increasingly globally connected world.  Thus, they need to be exposed to an international curriculum that enables them to interact in, understand, and appreciate cultures other than their own.

In view of the above, Kentucky State University offers a Minor program in International Studies. A Minor in International Studies requires the completion of 18 semester credit hours.
