International Studies

Multi-Disciplinary Study

Study global problems, develop language and intercultural skills and gain a solid understanding of global circumstances as you learn to make informed judgments regarding complex international and global issues. This program is designed to provide students with a strong foundation by exposing them to international politics, history, anthropology, geography, and economics.

International Experience Update for IS Majors

Due to travel restrictions from COVID protocols, the International Experience (i.e.: Internships, Study Abroad) will be automatically waived for those graduating through Spring 2023. 
This waiver will be re-evaluated for those planning to graduate after Spring 2023. 
If you want to participate in a Study Abroad or Internship, you may do so but there is no need to do so if you are planning to graduate on or before Spring 2023. 
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Colin Flint
