The Workplace Intercultural Competency Minor is designed for undergraduate students to provide them with a foundation in the intercultural skills and knowledge to work in diverse management environments. Students who acquire the Workplace Intercultural Competency Minor will distinguish themselves to future employers because of their global perspective, second-language studies, awareness of cultural diversity, and intercultural competence.

A program approval must be prepared and approved by an academic advisor from the Languages, Literatures and International Studies Department and a copy forwarded to the Registrar’s Office. A degree evaluation will not be performed until approval is received.

For department information or additional degree requirements, go to the Languages, Literatures and International Studies department page.
