Bachelor's in International Studies

The International Studies major focuses on world affairs with a special emphasis on philosophy, economics, and culture. Courses in this major focus on both general topics (such as conflict, globalization, terrorism, human rights) and area or country studies (the Middle East, Russia, China, Japan, Latin America). Unlike most other degree programs, the International Studies major allows students the flexibility to earn credit towards their major by taking some selected courses from other departments to provide a broader international perspective. Graduates from this major are well poised for a wide range of careers in both the public and private sector. Recent graduates have pursued careers in government, business, or non-government organizations that have an international or global focus.
