Slavic Studies (Minor)
The Slavic studies minor places an equal focus on Slavic languages, cultures and regional studies. Students can pursue a concentration in either Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian or Polish to gain professional linguistic proficiency.
The program is designed to complement the studies of students whose professional interests intersect with Poland or the countries of southeastern Europe, regardless of their major discipline. Many students are majors in history, cultural anthropology, music, political science or economics.
GPA Requirement: None
Incompatible Majors: None

Students who wish to add the minor in Slavic studies to the degree they are currently pursuing may do so by contacting the School of International Letters and Cultures advising office.
Current ASU undergraduate students may pursue a minor and have it recognized on their ASU transcript at graduation. Minor requirements appear on the degree audit once the minor is added. Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate by the college or department of either the major program or the minor. Courses taken for the minor may not count toward both the major and minor.
Minor programs allow students to develop additional competencies that complement the marketable knowledge and skills they acquire in their majors.
A minor in Slavic studies helps students with communication and cultural competency skills as they pursue careers in political analysis, education, tourism and hospitality, the military, sociology, marketing or various other fields.
