The international studies degree program is interdisciplinary, with a curriculum that focuses on historical and contemporary dimensions of complex global issues. You’ll develop skills in research and analysis, cultivate a critical awareness of the relationships of power and inequality, and how to question conventional wisdom.
As you work towards your international studies degree, you’ll 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.
In addition to a variety of combined degree programs, we 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 as few as five years.
We also offer the 3+3 BA/JD Program, which allows high-achieving first-year undergraduate international studies degree students to be admitted simultaneously to the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (LAS) and the College of Law (LAW). You’ll complete your first three years in LAS and your final three years in LAW.
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.
