Oklahoma City University has added an international studies minor.

The program is offered within the Petree College of Arts and Sciences under the direction of political science professor Mohamed Daadaoui, who is from Morocco and specializes in Middle East affairs. Daadaoui designed the interdisciplinary program to utilize some of the existing fields of study at the university including liberal arts, cultural arts, business and law.

“The international studies minor engages students globally and prepares them to contribute — knowledgeably and responsibly — to a vastly interconnected world,” Daadaoui said. “Students acquire multiple global perspectives through a broad interdisciplinary curriculum, while also focusing on specific world regions and international issues. The program enables students to pursue further study and careers in globally-oriented fields.”

The minor consists of 21 credits. Courses include comparative politics, world religions, global security and international economics along with cultural studies like music and film. Students may also study abroad. For more information, contact the OCU Admissions office at 405-208-5050.
