There are four concentrations: Asian Studies, European Studies, Latin American Studies, and Middle East and North African Studies. Courses are required in foreign language, geography, political science, economics, history, and international studies, with other elective courses chosen from these and many more disciplines across the college and university.
Graduates of the International Studies major will demonstrate that they are competent and capable in:
- Writing effectively about the themes of International Studies and related fields
- Communicating cross-culturally through written and oral expression
- Thinking critically about international issues
- Applying an interdisciplinary approach to knowledge
Graduates in International Studies apply their education in a wide variety of careers, including those in international business, non-profit organizations, academics, public policy, law, government, city planning, engineering, environmental sustainability and clean energy, information systems, journalism, publishing, education, sales and marketing, management and administration, artistic production, mass media, communications, museums, entertainment, foreign service, and many other areas in need of intelligent, well-rounded, and broadly world-educated people.
Some International Studies graduates enter graduate or professional schools for more specialized study in either international studies or one of many other disciplines. To enhance their career opportunities, majors are encouraged to consider participating in paid or volunteer work or internship opportunities, and to study abroad.
