International Studies


International Studies is a multi-disciplinary department preparing students for a variety of careers with an international dimension. It offers two courses of study: International Relations and Area Studies. International Relations offers students a broad curriculum in foreign relations and cultures to prepare students for careers and post-graduate education in, e.g., foreign service, diplomacy, security studies, peace and conflict resolution, or international development. Area Studies provide students with a more focused program of study in one of three regions: Asia, Europe or Latin America.

International Studies degrees are designed to support Gonzaga University’s mission to foster “a mature commitment to dignity of the human person, social justice, diversity, intercultural competence, global engagement, solidarity with the poor and vulnerable, and care for the planet.” They are also committed to the College of Arts and Sciences vision of “engaging with meaningful problems in our local and global communities and pursuing the cause of social justice.”
