Courses and Requirements

The International Studies Major provides a solid multidisciplinary grounding in the study of global interdependence while allowing students to develop strengths in at least two traditional disciplines. Students build core knowledge of international social sciences, become fluent in at least one language, and are encouraged to approach international issues from viewpoints that interest them most. These may involve upper-level work in the sciences, humanities, literature, and arts as well as the social sciences and languages. As entry to the program is limited, interested students should begin the advising process early in their sophomore year.
