The curriculum for the CIS undergraduate program is both international and interdisciplinary. CIS students choose from a variety of classes that are offered through the departments of:
- Film and Media Studies
- History of Science
- International & Area Studies
- Political Science
As an integral part of the undergraduate program, CIS students also choose a foreign language relevant to their area of concentration and develop communication skills in this language through classes offered by the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Linguistics.
Finally, CIS students are required to spend at least one academic term, preferably a year, working abroad or studying at an international university of their choice with the approval of CIS.
OU has exchange agreements with 120 partners in 52 countries, thus allowing CIS students to study in almost any geographic region of the world!
Due to COVID-19 and related travel bans, we will consider exceptions to the study abroad requirement on a case-by-case basis.
