Curriculum (Revised Fall 2021)
The major includes four units: foundational courses, thematic concentration, regional concentration and language proficiency.
Foundational courses include courses in Political Science, History, Sociology, Economics and International Studies.
A thematic concentration in either International Political Economy, War and Peace, or Global and Intercultural Connections.
A regional concentration in either Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, or the Middle East.
Proficiency in a language spoken in the region of study
All International Studies majors are required to take six (6) credits at the 300-level or higher in a modern language other than English. Students may need to take language courses at the 100 or 200-level, depending on their previous studies of the language and where they are placed in the sequence of courses.
