Any student at the University of Mississippi can minor in international studies. Students do not have to apply to the Croft Institute to declare international studies as their minor. Students can simply start taking the courses required for the minor, but it is useful to declare the minor. Students pursuing majors in the College of Liberal Arts should visit Ventress to declare, while students in other schools should visit their respective dean's office.

Course Requirements: A minor in international studies consists of 18 hours, including Pol 102 (Introduction to Comparative Politics) and 15 hours of 300-level (or higher) course work selected from Inst-designated courses. A minimum grade of C is required in all course work to be counted toward the international studies minor.
Other Academic Requirements: Students must demonstrate competency in a modern language other than English by completing 3 hours of 300-level course work in a modern language with a minimum grade of C.
Students who have taken Inst 101 as international studies majors and would like to complete the minor can substitute Inst 101 for Pol 102.
