The International Studies program is interdisciplinary, with a curriculum that focuses on historical and contemporary dimensions of complex global issues. You will develop skills in research and analysis, cultivate a critical awareness of the relationships of power and inequality, understanding social and cultural complexity, and how to question conventional wisdom.
Develop your critical reading, writing, research and problem-solving skills and become able to identify problems and develop solutions to local, regional and international challenges.
We also offer a combined bachelor's/master's degree program in International Studies, which allows you to complete a bachelor's degree and a graduate degree in International Studies in five years.
You’re also encouraged to develop proficiency in a second language through two years of intensive language study, as well as participate in a study abroad program where your second language is spoken.
