About the International Studies Program


The International Studies major and minor combine different subjects to help students see the world from different perspectives. They cover various areas of study and important global problems to explain how the world is linked and changing. Students and faculty in the major know that studying only one subject is not enough to understand how the world works. That is why this major helps students learn about different parts of the world and how things have changed over time.

When students choose the International Studies major, they gain skills to become responsible global citizens. The world is becoming more connected, and issues that affect the whole world also touch local communities. Soon, almost every job will involve something international. Solving big global problems requires people who comprehend the entire world, and these individuals will be highly valuable and make positive contributions to their communities.
