Bachelor of Arts in International and Area Studies Major Area: Global Energy, Environment and Resources
Drawing on the interdisciplinary framework of IAS, students in this major receive training that emphasizes policy, management, and sustainability in an international context. After fulfilling a Foundations of GEER requirement, students take courses in three areas of concentration: Energy, Climate, and Environment; Global Environmental Sustainability and Ethics; and International Society and Environment. Students then specialize in one region of the world, allowing them to combine their thematic interest with area studies expertise. Students will receive real world experience by interning or engaging in service learning with either an energy company or an internationally-oriented environmental NGO. This major provides students with the skills they need to succeed in an international field with growing employment opportunities.
