Degree Requirements

Each student in International Studies can take a wide variety of courses to satisfy the course requirements. Because students must show a minimum of eight courses not double-counted in any other major(s), students should see an international studies adviser when designing their program. All IS adjunct majors and minors must satisfy the 2-year Weinberg language proficiency requirement.

Adjunct majors must complete a minimum of 12 courses including 5 Core courses, 3 Thematic courses, 3 Regional courses, and 1 Senior Integrating Seminar.

Minors must complete 8 courses including 5 Core courses and 3 additional courses in either a Regional or Thematic concentration.
