International Studies Minor

Longwood University offers an International Studies minor for those students who wish to devote a part of their education to learning about societies other than their own; it aims to give interested students an opportunity to supplement their academic major with a concentration of studies which will enhance an understanding of the larger world in which we must live and work.

Students who wish to participate in the minor should contact Dr. Lily Anne Goetz, Director of International Affairs, in Ruffner 146, goetzla@longwood.edu.
