Advisement for the minor is available from the Philosophy Department.
The South Asian studies minor is an interdisciplinary area studies program with a study abroad requirement, as well as the opportunity to complete most of the minor via a semester abroad at a foreign SU partner institution.
Complete at least 1 course for the minor while studying in a South Asian country.
No more than 9 transfer credits may count toward the minor. (Note: Students may count 4 courses/16 credits completed via the semester-long Salisbury Abroad: American Institute of Indian Studies program toward the minor, as these are not transfer credits, but SU courses executed abroad via SU’s partner institution in Pune, India.)
Earn grades of C or better in all courses taken for the minor.
No more than 1 course in the minor may be used to satisfy General Education requirements.
This checklist is an unofficial tool for planning. Matriculated students and advisors should consult the Academic Requirements Report in GullNet before and after registering for classes each semester to track academic progress.
