The International Studies major is a rigorous program that’s unique in that it draws its faculty from several different departments to create a truly interdisciplinary curriculum. Students develop an in-depth understanding of major themes in international relations, current global issues, recent world history and modern cultures and societies. They also gain analytical skills suited for the study of other societies and international issues. In this era of globalization, a major in International Studies provides a competitive edge in the job market and enables success in numerous professions.

In the course of study, students gain expertise on a particular region of the world and develop a thematic concentration from wide-ranging fields, such as international development and migration, human rights and law, diplomacy and foreign affairs, international business and commerce, literature, religion, popular culture and the fine arts. This adaptability makes for innovative, interesting and career-flexible graduates.
