The International Studies program provides students with an education that broadens their knowledge of the people of the world, international events, and the socio-economic and socio-political background to global affairs. To do this, it integrates area studies and the study of international problems viewed from a cross-disciplinary perspective. New curricular efforts, including global perspectives in issues-oriented courses, are emphasized.
Minor in International Studies
The International Studies minor is a twenty-one credit program that complements majors in the humanities, social sciences, arts and business. It provides a foundation for graduate work in the field and careers in which an understanding of international economic, political, social, and cultural affairs is of importance.
