This trip is also closely linked to the newly created International Relations Minor. For the minor, only needs to enroll in Introduction to International Relations (SSC 105) in the Fall of 2019, taught by Dr. Simon Gomez, and then take the rest of the above classes listed during the summer. If you have already completed some or all of these courses, you can request a substitute course or a directed study.
