  3. Complete two courses from the following (6 hours):
  4. Complete 9 hours from the electives below. (Courses counted above do not double count.):

    Note: **These courses may be counted in this section if not already counted in the previous section.

    Note: ***Students must have completed IAS 220 before doing an internship.

  5. Note: Students cannot count both Econ 230 and 431 or Econ 230 and 432. They should choose to take either the 200-level course or the 400-level course.

    Note: Because the International Development Minor is interdisciplinary, it is critical that students are exposed to multiple disciplinary perspectives and methods as they address the larger topic of international development. Thus, no more than 6 credit hours from any one discipline can be counted toward fulfillment of the minor. The one exception to this is IAS credits through IAS 220, 380R, 397R, or 399R. Counting the required IAS 220, no more than 12 hours of IAS credit can count toward the minor.

    *Hours include courses that may fulfill university core requirements.
