WSU to offer three new online minors

Washington State University's Global Campus will launch online minors in American Indian studies and film studies this spring. A hospitality minor will be offered starting this fall.

“The new online American Indian Studies minor will help students expand their knowledge, abilities and interests in Native American history, culture, politics and contemporary issues,” said WSU Professor Michael Holloman, who helped create the program.

The Film Studies minor explores how cinema both reflects and influences the facts, ideas, and activities of any given society, said Ana María Rodríguez-Vivaldi, associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and a professor of Spanish and Film Studies.

The American Indian and film minors require 18 credits, or six courses: Three core courses and three electives from a variety of related areas.

The hospitality business management minor offers practical skills for anyone seeking to launch or advance a career in the hospitality industry, ranging from culinary management to international tourism.

This minor requires 19 credits, with one required three-credit course, one required 1-credit course and five electives. Students minoring in HBM must also earn 400 hours of paid internship or industry experience.
