Your Gateway to the World


The primary goal of the Global & Area Studies Program is to provide a solid understanding of global issues and world affairs. Students majoring in international studies participate in a rigorous academic curriculum that includes the learning of a foreign language, and they are involved in numerous activities outside the classroom that contribute to their understanding of international affairs and prepare them for a career in the global workplace. Our students are highly encouraged to study abroad, to do internships, field research and get involved in community service. Students graduating with a degree in international studies are able to recognize and appreciate the historical, political, social, cultural, and economic dimensions of international processes and issues, integrating these into an interdisciplinary perspective. Explore your options. We look forward to hearing from you!
