How to Declare


A minor in International Relations (IR) is intended to provide an interdisciplinary background allowing a deeper understanding of contemporary international issues. To declare IR as your minor, log into AXESS and indicate that you want to declare the IR minor. Read over the minor requirements and policies below, then complete the following form (below) and submit it to an IR Peer Advisor during drop-in office hours. The IR Peer Advisors, and their posted office hours, can be found on their page here.
