International Studies

International Studies

Gain an in-depth understanding of international relations, conflict and change, and sensitivity to diverse cultures.

The International Studies program offers an interdisciplinary major, with the option of concentrating in Diplomacy and Security or Sustainability and Global Justice, and three interdisciplinary minors: Latin American Studies, Middle East Studies or Peace Studies. These courses of study are designed to prepare students for work and life in an increasingly interconnected world.

The program provides a broad-based foundation in world history, culture, politics, and economics. The major is well-suited to students interested in careers in such rapidly growing sectors as international business, law, media, governmental and non-governmental organizations concerned with diplomacy, policy-making, global justice, sustainability, public health, peace, relief operations, immigration, and the environment.
