The International Studies major provides students with an interdisciplinary program through which they can gain a broad knowledge of international affairs as well as expertise on one of the world’s regions. Study abroad experiences and world language study form integral parts of the program. Students, with the support of their advisors, have considerable freedom in designing their own program of study.
The major may form an attractive double major for students from a variety of disciplines, such as political science, history and world languages. It also might be profitably combined with a business minor. It should provide an educational background for those seeking international affairs careers in government, nongovernmental organizations (development/humanitarian), travel and business.
