International Studies Major, B.A.

The International Studies major is an interdisciplinary course of study, including a 39-hour major, a 39-hour Core 39 requirement, and open electives.  Students also will complete a minimum of two years (four semesters) or equivalent study in one non-English world language.  International study or work is strongly recommended.

The International Studies Bachelor of Arts degree consists of existing courses offered in the College of Liberal Arts, the Romain College of Business, and the Pott College of Science, Engineering, and Education.  All students will complete a common core of seven courses from five different disciplines.  These courses are:  INST 101 - Introduction to International Studies, ANTH 111 - Introduction to Cultural Anthropology, ECON 241 - Global Economic Issues, POLS 271 - International Politics, GEOG 330 - World Geography, HIST 112 - World Civilizations II, 1500-Present, and INST 497 - International Studies Capstone.  These are followed by six electives drawn from various disciplines.  The 18 hours of coursework must include no more than two courses from any one discipline, except the International Studies discipline, ensuring that students are exposed to a minimum of three disciplines, making this a truly interdisciplinary major.  Additional special topics courses may be approved for elective credit.  Consult the International Studies advisor for approval.  Course descriptions for the core courses and electives may be found under their specific disciplines.
