The International Studies degree offered by Texas A&M University provides an interdisciplinary curriculum that captures the broad range of social, political, cultural, and economic forces at play in an increasingly interdependent world. 


The International Studies courses offered by Texas A&M University are linked by language, topic, and region, and class work is enhanced by a related international experience. The degree couples a thorough background in foreign language with one of six different degree tracks: Communication and Media Studies, Commerce, Arts and Culture, Politics and Diplomacy, Environmental Studies, and Geographic Information Systems. All students participate in a 10 to 14 week international experience in their chosen geographic region.
