Interdisciplinary Minors

Minor in Asian Studies
With approximately 60 percent of the world's population and the attendant economic and political influence, Asia's and particularly China's global importance is evident. This implies more and more career opportunities in law, business, government, journalism, arts, and education for those students who have a background in Asian Studies. The Asian Studies Minor provides an opportunity for SLU undergraduates to add a multidisciplinary degree option in the geography, history, business, economics, politics, and culture of Asia. The Asian Studies minor is a 21 hour cooperative program involving several departments. It is open to all majors. (requirements here)

Minor in Global and Local Social Justice
The mission statement of Saint Louis University affirms a commitment to the "promotion of faith and justice in the spirit of the Gospels." Because of this commitment, SLU attracts a great many students who are moved to confront fundamental social problems such as poverty, injustice, or war. In order to address these and other problems meaningfully, students must understand the social and political systems that contribute to them causally and the cultural environments in which they occur. The aim of this unique interdisciplinary minor is to provide students with such an understanding. This is a 21-hour minor open to all majors. (requirements here)
