The international studies major provides a foundation in the study of a broad range of international phenomena, including, but not limited to, governance, economic development, humanitarian aid, non-governmental organizations, and conflict. It can equip persons desiring to work in economic development, missions, humanitarian aid, human rights organizations, diplomacy, or international education.

Students completing the major or minor will:

  • gain knowledge of the international arena that can be applied to their own major area of study
  • be conversant with the major actors and geographic areas in the international sphere
  • demonstrate an awareness of the interconnectedness of the modern world.
