About the Department of International & Area Studies

The Department of International and Area Studies is an exciting and rapidly growing academic unit of the University’s David L. Boren College of International Studies that directly responds to OU President David Boren’s challenge to place more emphasis on international and interdisciplinary programs.

The goal of IAS is to train students to succeed in an increasingly interdependent world and to promote continuing internationalization of the curriculum at OU.

Our programs allow students to learn a language, live and work where that language is spoken and under- stand the politics and cultures of different world regions.
