Courses that count for the INTS major and minor are found in the CU Denver course catalog (under the "Degree Requirements" tab) or via the Degree Audit tool. As an interdisciplinary major, we encourage students to select courses from many departments that match students' interests. INTS majors are strongly encouraged to pick courses that will allow them to earn "stackable" certificates and/or minors (see Major Requirements page). 

To aid in students' planning, INTS also assembles selected courses offered each semester (check under News and Events or contact and INTS advisor). Because INTS draws from courses across the University, there may occasionally be courses offered that do not appear on this lists or in the catalog. If you would like to see whether a course might count for the major or minor, please contact the International Studies Program Assistant Director, Alison Shah (alison.shah@ucdenver.edu; 303.315.3562). Additional or alternative courses may be counted for ICB students as well, please contact a Beijing-based advisor.

The following is a sample list of elective courses available in an average semester for the INTS program. A full list of course options for the major and minor is listed in the degree audit.
