Minoring in Hmong Studies involves exploring the culture, history and language of Hmong people worldwide. Our Hmong Studies minor is the only one of its kind in the world, providing a unique opportunity for you to augment your knowledge, language skills and cross-cultural expertise in a region and community of strategic and global importance. You’ll gain firsthand experiences in the Hmong-American community as you take 24 credit hours toward a Hmong studies minor in conjunction with a different bachelor’s degree major.
You’ll also have real experience to learn beyond the classroom, with tremendous opportunities to conduct research at Concordia’s Center for Hmong Studies and Archives and to interact with Hmong scholars from around the world through ongoing lectures, at special exhibits and during the Biennial International Conference on Hmong Studies hosted by Concordia. Because we design our Hmong studies program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant minor as a supplement to a variety of majors that will prepare you to work in fields such as international affairs, international business, the arts, government policy, health science, criminal justice and education.
