Bachelor of Arts in International and Area Studies Major Area: International Studies
The International Studies major allows students to gain a global perspective on world affairs. Through an interdisciplinary curriculum that focuses on world history, international relations and international economics, students learn how the international system operates and prepare themselves for careers in foreign affairs or international business, for advanced training in international law or business. Like the area studies programs, the international studies program requires strong understanding of a foreign language and a period of study or work abroad. Students may also combine International Studies with a minor in one of the Area Studies programs.
To complete the International Studies program, students may select courses that cross a number of world regions. Other courses may be substituted, but only with the approval of the program coordinator.
