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.
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.
As an undergraduate at UW, Nicholas obtained a double major in international studies and economics. He comments that the interdisciplinary courses offered by the international studies program were an excellent complement to his economics education, and gave him the ability to think about international issues from a wide variety of perspectives. Further, the writing and critical thinking skills that the international studies degree fosters have been an important part of his success in graduate school. According to him, the University of Wyoming offers an outstanding education, and he couldn’t have made it to where he is today without the help of the professors and advisors who constantly go out of their way to help students achieve their goals.
After graduating from the University of Wyoming, Nicholas earned a degree in MSc in Economics (with distinction) at The London School of Economics.
He recently was hired as a research assistant to three economists at Harvard University. His research interests include macro, monetary, and international economics.
