International Studies

About the Program

We seek to develop a global awareness in our students growing up in an increasingly interconnected world.


Core courses in international studies are drawn from the political science and history, business and economics, and modern foreign languages departments.

Our program is designed to foster an understanding of different cultures as well as the institutions, ideas and policies that will determine how nations relate to each other in the 21st century. An off-campus experience in the form of an internship, study abroad semester or study tour provides you with opportunities to immerse yourself in another culture and to apply your knowledge in a realistic setting as you prepare for your career.

International Studies students go on to work in law, international relations, political science and international development, as well as professional positions in the foreign service, international finance, international business, international journalism and with international humanitarian organizations.
