International Studies BA Program

In a world where global commerce and politics have emerged as driving forces, the international studies major provides students with global perspectives. INTS is an interdisciplinary liberal arts degree designed to offer students a thorough education in international issues preparing them for international careers. This major offers students the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of complex international issues and the forces that are shaping our world. Increasingly government and the private sector seek graduates familiar with differing perspectives and cultures and willing to adapt to the rapidly changing workplace.

The international studies major not only introduces students to diverse cultures, the aim is also to give them the methodological tools to analyze the world from different academic disciplines. The program requires students to take courses from a wide array of departments: Anthropology, Economics, Geography, History, Modern Languages, Political Science, Religious Studies and the Business School. The program is designed to give students both a broad understanding of different methods and approaches to international problems and ensure that the students come out of the program with a deeper understanding of one world region.

I'd like to welcome all IS majors and students back to school. As the new Director of International Studies, I look forward to meeting and working with all of you.

Additionally, I hope to expand IS course offerings, study abroad programs and internship opportunities during my tenure as Director.

If you have any questions about the program, or would just like to meet, please don't hesitate to contact me; otherwise, study hard and have a great semester!
