Welcome to the International Studies Program!
The International Studies Adjunct Major aims to provide future professionals who will be acting in the global arena with an interdisciplinary perspective on international phenomena. Graduates of the program will acquire the fundamental analytic skills and key intellectual concepts necessary to be critical analysts of international affairs. Students apply their analytic skills to explore substantive issues from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. In addition, students gain an expertise in a set of issues faced by a particular region outside the United States. Whether going on to a career in government, business, law, journalism, work in non-governmental organizations, engineering, medicine or other advanced degree or specialty, the ability to see politics and economics existing in social, environmental and cultural contexts and to comprehend and assess the world in its increasingly global dimensions is an invaluable asset.
Beyond academic requirements, we invite students to join our dynamic International Studies community. Students have a chance to socialize, attend forums and colloquia on news breaking issues, learn about fellowships and career opportunities and participate in off campus cultural activitie. We encourage and support students to use their creative talent and energy to develop their own projects and form student groups.
