The Bauer College of Business offers five minors in International Area Studies, each focusing on one region of the world.
This minor is not required of business majors, but is an option for business and non-business majors who would like more breadth in the historical, economic, political, social and cultural environment of business.
These minors require 15 hours of coursework, 9 hours of which include the following courses approved for all regions:
Nine of the 15 hours must be taken in residence at UH.
Students must earn a 2.00 minimum cumulative grade point average on courses attempted in the minor at UH.
Courses that are on the approved lists for UH Core Humanities or Social Science or Writing in the Disciplines may also count toward the IAS minors as long as the minimum total hours for the degree are met. Business majors with an IAS minor may waive up to six semester credit hours of 3000-4000 level nonbusiness coursework or 3000-4000 level courses approved for the IAS minor. Nonbusiness majors must get approval from the college of their major to use courses toward the major to also count toward the IAS minor. Students may not minor in more than one IAS region or in both IAS and the Global Business minor.
Students interested in a minor in one of the International Area Studies should contact the Office of Undergraduate Business Programs in the Bauer College of Business. Petitions for waivers and/or substitutions must be approved by the director of Global Studies in the Bauer College of Business.
For a current listing of courses approved for the International Area Studies minors, consult the Office of Undergraduate Business Programs, 262 Melcher Hall.
