Concentrations:

Minor:

International studies is a multidisciplinary major designed to meet the needs of students seeking the broadly based international perspective required for successful careers in education, government, international business, law, national and homeland security, humanitarian relief, and NGOs, among others. The curriculum includes a core of required courses, a concentration, a foreign language requirement, an international and/or cross-cultural experiential component, and a senior capstone seminar. The experiential component may be satisfied through study abroad, internship, language immersion, service, or work experience. The Center for International Programs and the Center for Social Concern can assist students in identifying many of these opportunities.

A minor in international studies consists of twenty-one semester hours.
