Course Selections for IAS Majors and Minors

The Department of International and Area Studies is an exciting, multidisciplinary department within OU’s College of International Studies. The goal is to train students to compete and succeed in an increasingly connected world. IAS offers a range of majors and minors that allow students to broadly explore global issues and concerns, or to more narrowly focus and gain in-depth experience about a particular region of the world.

Students are able to take courses from a variety of departments across campus. Please click on the links below to learn about what major and minor courses are available for next semester. Each list includes IAS prefixed courses but also offerings in several other affiliated departments.


NOTE: Please make sure to pay attention to the hour requirements for your major or minor since a certain number of hours must be upper-division and some courses must be IAS designated. If you have ANY questions, please make sure to consult with an IAS Advisor.


Pay close attention to the prerequisites for the course that you are interested in. It is the student’s responsibility to contact professors to ask about any (if necessary) prerequisite overrides.
