Majoring in International Studies


A bachelor's degree in international studies prepares students for a wide variety of careers, both domestically and abroad. Our program is interdisciplinary and students have a great deal of flexibility in designing their program of study to match their career interests.

Students majoring in international studies take a total of 37 hours from the international studies curriculum and 18 hours of a single foreign language. The courses are distributed across several categories: proseminar and capstone, core, global and regional tracks, and electives.

Sample schedule for incoming freshman

Students are encouraged to study abroad and participate in an internship. Financial resources are available to help you in these endeavors. We also encourage you to participate in extracurricluar activities, whether it be joining the International Studies Student Club, student government, or volunteering in the community.

For questions about the international studies curriculum or internship opportunities contact Manuela Hofer-McIntyre, Advising Coordinator.
