International Studies
Multidisciplinary Program

The program provides a solid, systematic grounding in the study of global interdependence while allowing students to develop strengths in at least two traditional disciplines. In consultation with the program’s director, each student designs a program that builds a core of knowledge in the international social sciences, develops fluency in at least one foreign language, and includes upper-level work that may come from the sciences, humanities, or literature and arts. Students are encouraged to spend their junior year abroad. In addition, each year the program organizes a specialized study trip to an area of current interest. Treated as a semester course, students learn about the language, culture, and history of the area they will visit. Recent destinations have included Cuba, Indonesia, Russia, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe. Work in the final year includes a senior seminar in the program and the completion of a thesis.
