International Studies


International Studies is a minor designed in response to increasing cultural interdependence and shared global concerns. The program develops an appreciation for and understanding of non-American cultures, values and languages that will enrich student’s successful participation in an increasingly pluralistic society. International Studies is an interdisciplinary program, designed as a flexible support curriculum for students in every degree program at Alvernia University.


Students who minor in International Studies will study in a core of courses in history, political science, social science and a modern language. Students are also encouraged to participate in an international learning experience during the junior or senior year. Alvernia, which is a member of the Pennsylvania Conference on International Education, will facilitate this experience, which must be undertaken at the student’s expense.
