Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Interdisciplinary Majors and Minors

Advisor: Mark Doyle

The minor in Modern European Studies allows students to explore the histories, politics, cultures, literatures, languages, and ideas of Europe during the modern period (c.1800-present). To complete the minor, students must choose 18 hours from the following list of courses, with no more than 6 credits from a single department or program. Any applicable prerequisites must be completed before taking these courses; unless they are listed below, prerequisites will not count toward the 18 hours for the minor. In addition to the courses listed below, students may apply up to 6 credit hours in MTSU signature study abroad courses to the minor. Directed readings, special topics, and internships in any pertinent department may be pursued with prior approval of the minor advisor; no more than 6 credit hours of these may be counted towards the minor.

Interdisciplinary Minors

Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.
