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, and 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.
