Cornell students of any major and college are eligible to declare a minor in a region of interest through one of the six Area Studies programs at Cornell: East Asia Program, Institute for African Development, Institute for European Studies, Latin American Studies Program, South Asia Program, and Southeast Asia Program. The International Relations minor is another option for students who seek a broader international perspective. Students interested in mapping their experiences abroad onto transnational or U.S.-based ethnic and cultural studies might consider a minor in ethnic studies such as Asian-American or Africana Studies. A minor in Global Health is an option for students who pursued field work abroad.
Most foreign languages offer minors, too.
